What's the difference between plastic wood and preservative?

2021-02-27
Plastic wood refers to the use of polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride, etc., instead of the usual resin adhesive, and more than 35%-70% of the wood powder, rice husk, straw Bai straw and other waste plant fibers mixed into new wood materials, and then through extrusion, molding, injection molding and other plastic processing technology, the production of boards or profiles.

Anticorrosive wood is the common wood after artificial addition of chemical preservatives, so that it has anti-corrosion, moisture-proof, anti-fungal, insect-proof, anti-mildew and waterproof properties.

Their production technology is different, which leads to their different characteristics, and their advantages and disadvantages are also different.

1. Plastic wood is the same construction conditions, can be less than more.

2. The plastic wood surface does not need to do paint treatment. General anticorrosive wood construction is completed or the construction process should be on the wood surface paint or besmear brush waterborne paint.

3. Plastic wood is a kind of profile with many hollow specifications. It saves a lot of material.

We all know that aluminum alloy doors and Windows can be popularized so quickly, because it is hollow profiles, if it is solid, so the price is inscrutably high. Plastic wood hollow saving part, although not as high as aluminum alloy, but also relatively objective. We all know that hollowing not only reduces weight, but also increases strength. Plastic wood can be hollow, but preservative wood can not.

4. The loss of plastic wood profile is less than that of anticorrosive wood.

In the same construction area or volume conditions, plastic wood than anticorrosive wood loss less. Because plastic wood is a profile, according to the actual size of the landscape engineering needs, the production of the required length, width, thickness of the material. And the length of preservative lumber is to regulate dead, be 2 meters commonly, 3 meters, 4 meters.

5. Plastic wood products can be maintenance-free.

Anticorrosive wood due to environmental temperature, humidity and solar ultraviolet radiation, generally in 1 year need to do maintenance or paint. In the long run, the maintenance cost of plastic wood is far lower than that of preservative wood products.

To sum up, plastic wood products no matter from the practical or economic point of view, are far better than anticorrosive wood, it can be said that plastic wood is gradually replacing anticorrosive wood, which is our manufacturers have done so many years of ecological wood summed up the experience.
