Homeowners and contractors alike are continually seeking decking materials that are durable and require little upkeep. Wood plastic composite (WPC) decking emerged years ago as a low-maintenance alternative to natural wood. Now, co-extrusion WPC decking takes ease of care even further with its protective outer layer.
What sets capped WPC decking boards apart is the co-extrusion manufacturing process. This involves extruding the inner WPC core at the same time as the outer protective cap. The result is a highly durable deck board with enhanced resistance to scratches, stains, mold and other damage.
The outer layer of co-extruded WPC decking is impervious to both water and oil-based stains. Liquids remain stuck on the surface rather than absorbing into the decking material. A simple soap and water cleaning easily removes stains. The protective cap also prevents moisture absorption into the inner wood-plastic core, eliminating cracking, rotting and mold growth issues.
Additionally, capped composite wood decking contain UV inhibitors in the outer layer. This prevents the sun's ultraviolet rays from degrading the deck surface and causing discoloration over time. And it blocks UV damage to the inner core as well.
In summary, the co-extrusion manufacturing process creates WPC decking boards with a durable, protective outer layer. This cap makes co-extruded composite decking boards longer-lasting as well as virtually maintenance-free compared to other decking options. It's an ideal solution for homeowners wanting a stellar, carefree deck.
