WPC (Wood Polymer Composite), a promising and sustainable green material is being evolved as a fundamental product for India, after being well adopted by the world. Moreover, to keep pace with burgeoning demands of building products the need for innovative and unique building material was felt hence Wood Polymer Composite came into existence.
During Wood Polymer Composite process, polymers are reinforced by incorporating the wood powder and fibres discharged from mills and factories as well as agriculture residues. WPC production is a 100% safe manufacturing practice, releasing no air or water pollution and having no process waste of materials. WPC is a highly eco-friendly product having no formaldehyde emission.
The conceptualization of Wood Polymer Composite is based on the ‘Cradle to Cradle’ approach where the material is recycled at the end of its cycle to produce a new cradle (new) product. The resultant is minimization of solid waste content and conservation of natural resources. Hence cost, energy and depletion of the core materials are reduced considerably.
The future of WPC is bright as users will recognize the benefits of it before the manufacturers. Across residential to commercial, its popularity is set to rise given the immense benefits to its end users in terms of physical and monetary value.
