Outdoor wood-plastic (plastic-wood) flooring is produced by using recycled HDPE plastic and discarded crop straws, sawdust and shavings and other natural plant fibers by high-temperature polymerization process, so it does not contain any toxic and harmful substances, and can be recycled and reused, so it It is a new type of building decoration product with environmental protection, energy saving and resource recycling in the true sense. So, what are the advantages and disadvantages of wood plastic flooring?

1. The advantages of outdoor plastic wood (wood plastic) flooring

Moisture-proof and mildew-proof: Everyone knows that solid wood flooring or anticorrosive wood flooring used outdoors is sensitive to moisture and moisture. Prolonged soaking or humid environment will cause the solid wood flooring to crack, mold, swell, and deform, while plastic wood ( Wood-plastic flooring fundamentally solves this shortcoming of solid wood flooring, and is more prominent in terms of waterproof, moisture-proof and mildew-proof performance. Therefore, plastic-wood flooring can be used in environments where traditional anticorrosive wood flooring cannot be applied.

Rich styles and colors: Compared with traditional anticorrosive wood flooring, plastic wood flooring not only has a natural sense of wood and texture, but also has richer colors, which can make outdoor landscape decoration more personalized.

Anti-insect and ants: solid wood floors will be eroded by insects or termites, and plastic wood floors can effectively prevent insects and ants, so the service life will be longer than traditional anticorrosive wood floors.

Strong plasticity: There are many styles and colors of plastic wood flooring, so it is suitable for various decoration styles and can achieve personalized modeling, so its plasticity is much better than ordinary anticorrosive wood flooring.

Low-carbon environmental protection and zero formaldehyde: Plastic wood flooring does not contain heavy metal substances, and its formaldehyde content meets EO standards.

Fireproof: Plastic wood floor can effectively flame retardant, its fireproof grade reaches B1 grade, can self-extinguish without fire, and does not produce any toxic and harmful gas.

Easy installation: The installation of plastic wood flooring is simple and convenient, does not require complicated installation processes, and can save installation time and labor costs.

2. Disadvantages of outdoor plastic wood (wood plastic) flooring

Thermal expansion and contraction: If the temperature difference between day and night in the use environment is large, the surface and core layers of the plastic wood floor will have uneven temperature changes, which will easily cause expansion and deformation, which will also affect the service life of the plastic wood floor. 

Surface fading: In order to save the cost of formula and production process, some small plastic wood material factories will reduce or even not use antioxidants, coupling agents and other related reinforcing additives. In this case, plastic wood flooring will appear. Problems such as serious fading, brittleness and cracking of materials, swelling and mildew.
