WPC Panel Factory Introduces The Application Advantages Of Wpc Plastic Wood Materials In The Urban Landscape

Author: admin / 2023-02-21
WPC plastic wood material combines the characteristics and advantages of wood and plastic, while the basic material and molding process determine some properties of WPC. WPC has a relatively high density of 0.6~1.2cm 3 /g; it also has a high hardness of more than 58. Compared with wood, WPC has good mechanical properties, which are manifested in the controllable deformation resistance of the material, high hardness, and good wear resistance. Below, WPC Panel Factory introduces the application advantages of WPC plastic wood materials in urban landscapes:
1. Anti-aging: WPC has good waterproof performance, its water content is not more than 2%, and its water expansion rate is less than 1%. Plastic is not easy to absorb water and deform. The water absorption rate of wood is 20.6%, while the water absorption rate of WPC based on PE, PVC, and PP is 0.6%, 0.5%~0.8%, and 0.5%, respectively. It can be clearly seen that the water absorption rate of WPC Compared with wood, the rate is much smaller, only 2.4%~3.9% of wood. Compared with natural wood, WPC has strong corrosion resistance. This is mainly because WPC is made of a mixture of plant fibers and high-density resin, and the resin wraps and seals wood fibers to avoid fungus invasion and damage to the material. Therefore, WPC has strong corrosion resistance.
2. Various decorative colors: During the preparation process of WPC, toner can be added according to requirements to change the color of the material. The light-colored WPC gives people a relaxed and pleasant visual and psychological experience, while the original color close to natural wood satisfies people's sensory requirements for being close to nature. Gloss and pattern decoration. The gloss and pattern of WPC can be customized and suppressed according to the needs of customers. The pattern can be almost random and combined with the gloss and shade of the material, it can give people a different feeling.
3. Environmental protection: WPC is used to replace natural wood, which saves forest resources and protects the natural environment. Relevant data show that every 1 ton of WPC put into use can reduce the felling of tree resources by 1 m 3, which is equivalent to reducing nearly 1.8 tons of greenhouse gas emissions. WPC can meet the design principles of the modern urban landscape, that is, practicality, pleasantness, and environmental protection. At present, the application of WPC in the urban landscape is mainly planks, walls, guardrails, landscape sketches, and some auxiliary facilities in the city.
4. WPC decking: According to the cross-section of WPC boards, it can be divided into two types: hollow WPC boards and solid WPC boards. The installation method of the WPC board can also be divided into two types: direct method and buckle method. Compared with natural wood materials, WPC decking is not easy to crack, not easy to be damaged by insects and ants, good waterproof, wear-resistant, has good aging resistance, has stable mechanical properties, appearance close to natural logs, rich and diverse forms, can be customized according to needs Custom patterns and easy maintenance. However, WPC is generally only paved in places with a relatively small flow of people, and it is not suitable for paving in areas where vehicles often enter and exit. Generally speaking, WPC decking is very practical and durable and is widely used in plank roads and courtyards in urban gardens.
5. WPC fence: According to whether it blocks the line of sight, WPC fence can be divided into three types: closed type, semi-open type, and open type; according to its function, it can be divided into two types: barrier type and ornamental type. The main function of the WPC wall applied in the urban landscape is for people to watch, of course, it also includes the function of blocking space. Since the fence is outside, it needs to be exposed to wind and rain for a long time. Therefore, the material of the fence should have properties such as anti-aging and easy repair, and WPC materials fully possess these properties. In addition, the landscape wall should also reflect the culture of the city and enhance its image of the city. The WPC material can convey the combination of nature and modernity to people, and it is the best choice for urban landscape wall materials.

6. WPC guardrail: WPC guardrail is generally composed of columns, beams, handrails, spacers, bases, and other parts. According to its function, it can be divided into safety guardrail and landscape guardrail. WPC safety guardrails are mainly used in places with relatively high safety requirements, such as lakesides, riversides, mountain roads, and both sides of roads. This type of guardrail requires strong impact resistance. The landscape guardrail has no special requirements for safety. This type of guardrail is mainly used in parks, flower beds, and other places, and only plays a decorative role. The preparation process of WPC materials is rich and varied, and products of different colors, shapes, and specifications can be made according to engineering needs. Therefore, the market demand for WPC guardrails will gradually increase.
7. WPC landscape sketches: WPC can be applied to pavilions, corridors, flower pots, tree pools, benches, etc. in landscape sketches. This is due to the variety of colors and patterns of WPC, giving people a feeling close to nature. WPC landscape sketches are easy to install, convenient and durable, and easy to maintain, while other materials such as concrete and steel are out of place when used in landscape sketches, and it is difficult to show a sense of harmony. Therefore, WPC products are well-received by people and have been widely used in landscape sketches. In addition to the above-mentioned planks, walls, guardrails, etc., WPC auxiliary facilities are also used in some auxiliary facilities in the city. The common ones are dustbins, signs, introduction signs, warning signs, etc. These WPC products are easy to install, easy to maintain, and have high use value. Society is progressing and people's quality of life is constantly improving, and the public begins to pay attention to the design of urban landscapes, and WPC has been recognized by society for its many advantages.
