Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is one of the latest materials used nowadays and is an option to replace natural wood .The comparison between the two materials are –

  • Wood Plastic Composite can be used as it is and requires no further painting or polishing. Natural wood needs to be cut to required sizes followed by painting or polishing.
  • WPC can be installed instantly. Natural wood needs to be finished with polish before hand over or pre finished wood can be used for installation.
  • WPC is split resistant and splinter free while natural wood is not.
  • WPC is more durable and weather resistant than natural wood. WPC is not affected by water, snow or heat.
  • WPC is a hybrid material which has the quality of wood and ease of working like plastic. Wood is a natural material and the material needs experienced carpenters to work on it so as to give a good finish.
  • WPC is a sustainable material which uses recycled plastic and waste wood hence preventing the further cutting of trees. Natural wood will eventually result in deforestation.
