|PS Plastic Lumber User Guide：|
|Item||Natural wood||Wood-Plastic Composite||PS Plastic Lumber|
|Density of fresh material||--------||0.95/cm3||0.9 /cm3||1.2 /cm3||1.05 /cm3|
|Density||0.5-0.7/cm3||1.3 ~1.4/cm3||0.65-0.7/cm3 (Similar to natural wood, but lightweight.)|
|Physical properties analysis||Up until 2004, almost all residential decks were framed with pressured–treated lumber with Chromated-Copper Arsenate (CCA).
(NOTE:CCA was phased out due to environmental and health concerns)
|Lower strength and stiffness. Contain 40~80% wood fiber, CaCO3 powder, hull, some natural fibers, etc.||
Good rigidity of the materials.It made from 100% virgin plastic resin with some additives, such as anti-aging formula and UV stabilizers.
|External||It will obscure the wood grain with CCA||It's processed twice, so the texture becomes shallow and it's easy to be worn away. Look and feel like plastic.||Realistic 3D wooden texture on all 4 sides, and obvious wood grain|
|Water absorption rate||Extremely high, about 5%||High, about 2-3%||Extremely low, about 0.3 % and water will evaporate naturally.|
|Wet environments||Rot, mildew, crack, splinter, etc||Rot, mildew, crack, splinter, etc.||Waterproof, mildew-proofing, mothproofing and won’t warp, crack, splinter, etc.|
|Advantages||Cheapest。||Cheaper due to its wood fiber /CaCO3 powder and thermoplastics in the mix.
(Wood fiber: about￥640 per ton、CaCO3 powder: about￥960 per ton)
|It made from 100% HIPS features a zero-sheen, realistic 3D wooden texture on all 4 sides, and is 100% recyclable due to its pure material.|
|Defects||It poses health risk to people and will still rot or crack even with wood preservatives.||
The product is heavy due to its wood fiber/CaCO3 powder in the mix.
|It made from 100% virgin plastic resin without wood fiber. As the cost is high, the selling price is expensive.|
|Common problems||Extremely high water absorption rate, and it's easy to rot, mildew, crack, splinter, warp, etc.||It's worn away easily due to its shallow texture. High water absorption rate, and it's easy to rot, mildew, crack, splinter, warp, etc.||It's normal that the boards will expand or contract during big temperature difference. But it won’t happen if you have the proper design and construction.|
|Maintenance||In order to recover its original external, it needs to be painted.||Short lifespan and no specific ways to maintain it.||It's maintenance-free if you build it properly.|
|Influence||Non-Recyclable Materials. Burying or burning it will lead to water, land, or air pollution and endanger human health.||It's not recyclable due to its complicated ingredients||
|Conclusion||It poses a risk to human who are in contact with the arsenic lumber. Thus, US EPA suggests that the public must wash hands after exposing to any wooden products, especially children. Also, it needs to paint transparent lacquer at least once a year to prevent form environmental pollution.||Generally speaking, after 1-2 years, it will start to rot, mildew, crack, splinter or warp, etc.||
It made from 100% virgin plastic resin.
It is widely used in any environments, especially in wet environments, such as beach or lake, etc.
