Wood Polymer Composite Board
Wood plastic boards or better known as wood polymer composite boards is made by dispersing some quantity of wood particles and pigments into a polymer matrix with colourants, additives and a coupling agent . This composite material is passed through various stages in processing such as extrusion, compression and injection moulding.
Both the ingredients whether it is wood or plastic naturally attract termites for food and rodents for sharpening their teeth. Infact WPCs are sometimes called wrongly as wpc ply board while wpc board manufacturers are quiet about the misleading information.
WPC Boards for exterior are widely used. Wood Polymer Composite board price depends on the density offered. Due to rising cost of PVC, and over supply of WPC, fillers are added like choona and calcium powder which makes it brittle and reduces the density and wpc board price. However Indowud nfc addresses various challenges posed by WPC.

These days the markets have a variety and a combination of panel boards. There are boards with various ingredients, but each have their own shortcomings and challenges with regard to termites, expansion, contraction and resistance to cyclic changes.
Indowud nfc is much better in comparision to WPC due to its ingredients. The primary raw material being rice husk is the reason why Indowud is termite proof, unlike WPC which has food for termites in the form of ligneous cellulose materials. Its superiority in terms of density, screw holding capacity and water proofing also adds to the features for longevity.
Wood polymer composite boards don’t have the natural feel of wood and can’t be overlaid with veneers or laminates, unlike Indowud NFC. Wpcs can’t be painted, printed or stained either, unless they are scratched on the surface. Apart from these features, Indowud nfc can be thermoformed to make any design, unlike WPCs.
