WPC anti-corrosion wood flooring, referred to as WPC decking, is a composite floor board made of wood fibers and polymer materials (plastics). WPC decking combines the advantages of natural wood and plastic, the natural sustainability of wood and the strength, water resistance and durability of plastic. Therefore, WPC decking has been widely used in the decoration of indoor and outdoor floors. The following is a historical introduction to WPC decking.
The history of WPC decking can be traced back to the early 1990s. In the United States and Europe, some manufacturers began to experiment with mixing plastic and wood flour to produce a more durable and waterproof flooring material. During the process, a number of issues arose, including color fading, insufficient weather resistance, and bonding issues between the plastic and wood. But over time, manufacturers began experimenting with different recipes and increasing the use of other raw materials.
In the early 21st century, with the increasing awareness of environmental protection and the development of new technologies, WPC decking has gradually become a fashionable, green and advanced floor decoration material. Some manufacturers have begun to continuously improve and upgrade the performance and appearance of WPC decking to meet the growing needs of consumers. For example, using better polymers, such as PVC and HDPE, to make floors that are more durable and easier to maintain, or using higher grades of recycled wood and plastics.
China’s WPC decking manufacturers began to strengthen the development of this market in the mid-2000s, and through the introduction of advanced technology, further improved the quality and performance of products, and gradually became an important player in the global WPC decking production and supply industry. In recent years, with the rapid growth of my country’s real estate industry and changes in market demand, the use and production of WPC decking has gradually developed towards high-end, intelligent and personalized directions.
In a word, with the passage of time, WPC decking has changed from an emerging floor decoration material to a widely used building material, and has been favored and paid attention to by more and more people. There are still many challenges and opportunities in the development of WPC decking. Manufacturers need to constantly explore new raw materials, new technologies and new application scenarios to meet the ever-changing market demands.
