Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are composite materials made of wood fiber/wood flour and Wood-plastic composites were first introduced into the decking market in the In some manufacturing facilities, the constituents are combined and WPC boards show good set of performance but monolithic composite sheets
PVC decking is composed entirely of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and contains no wood. PVC The deck board core is coated and bound with an outer plastic shell, but the materials can be temperamental and hard to work with. This cost means that PVC will be a more expensive investment up front, although manufacturers
