Wood-plastic floor, mainly used in building materials industry. Generally speaking, plastics such as HDPE, plant fiber and various additives are mixed in a certain proportion and formed by extrusion process, which is a new kind of material which has flourished since the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. In Europe, the United States and other developed countries, polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride are used as binders with wood flour and other additives to mix more than 70% plant fibers into new wood materials, and then the wood-plastic floor is produced by extrusion process, so it is more advanced in technology than in China.

Wood plastic composite decking has excellent natural performance: waterproof, moisture-proof, insect-proof, termites, can effectively eliminate insect harassment, long service life, many colors to choose from, strong plasticity, can be very simple to achieve personalized modeling, fully reflect personality style, high environmental protection, pollution-free, recyclable. Good machinability, bookable, planable, sawing, drillable, lacquer, simple installation, convenient construction, no complicated construction technology, saving installation time and cost, no cracking, no expansion, no deformation, no repair and maintenance, convenient cleaning, saving later repair and maintenance costs, sound absorption effect is good.

With the improvement of technology, the high cost of wood plastic decking is gradually decreasing. And 95% of the raw materials of wood-plastic floor are recycled materials, so the cost is low, at the same time, the product can be recycled 100%, wood-plastic floor can even improve the impact strength through micro-foaming, reduce the specific gravity, and achieve the real imitation of wood. High environmental protection, pollution-free, recyclable

However, a big problem is that market recognition is still very low, which is the biggest difficulty for the wood-plastic industry. Because the domestic wood-plastic industry from the development to the manufacture of products has not been less than 10 years. Performance: first, the scale of enterprises are relatively small, cannot form a certain scale of industrial clusters and group pull effect. Second, the overall national production efficiency is poor, production line configuration is not ideal, complete sets of products are particularly short. Third, many wood-plastic floor quality is poor, and the kind is single, many products still belong to coarse stupid, simple low-end material, lack of market competitiveness. Fourth, many related R & D institutions, auxiliary manufacturers lack with the enterprise. Coordination, can not provide support to each other.

Therefore, it can be seen that in recent years, the practitioners in the difficult market cultivation work, in fact, the main reason from the heart will be that wood plastic flooring products is a new product, to replace generations of used wood, it is impossible for users to accept at once, there must be a process of understanding and gradual promotion. The national policy pays special attention to the recycling of resources and the protection of the ecological environment, which creates an extremely good environment for the development of wood-plastic flooring, plus the advantages of wood-plastic flooring itself, so I think the prospect of development will be more and more rapid.

As a promising new industry, China’s wood-plastic industry has just started. According to incomplete statistics, by 2021, there were more than 200 enterprises and institutions directly engaged in the research and production of wood and plastic materials,The application of wood plastic materials in China is still in the primary stage, which is limited by technology, capital, equipment and marketing ability, which leads to the single product variety, low production efficiency, high production cost and poor quality stability of most enterprises;
