How to Clean and Maintain WPC (Wood Plastic Composite)

In the previous article, we talked about wood decking, listing its characteristics and the most suitable products for treatment and maintenance to prevent its degradation over time.

Over the years, wood decking has become one of the main options for completing and furnishing your garden or outdoor patio. At the same time, new solutions with alternative materials, including WPC, are emerging.

What is WPC Composite?

Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is a hybrid material that combines wood fibers and plastic polymers to create a versatile product suitable for various applications. This material has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its unique combination of properties, blending the strength of wood and the durability of plastic.

WPC can be used in a wide range of applications, including indoor and outdoor flooring, wall cladding, fencing, garden furniture, shutters, and more. It is available in a variety of colors, finishes, and styles to suit different tastes and design projects.

Overall, Wood Plastic Composite offers an interesting solution for projects requiring the natural beauty of wood, the durability and practicality of plastic, and low maintenance; this is why it is often referred to as « eternal » and non-absorbent flooring.

WPC: Characteristics and Durability

WPC decking consists of more than 50% wood powder, a highly absorbent material, which means this type of flooring cannot be considered completely resistant to stains and moisture damage. Therefore, it requires periodic maintenance to protect it over time and preserve its beauty.

Chimiver has developed a line of products dedicated to the treatment and maintenance of WPC floors. Let’s explore their functionalities together.

How to Treat WPC Decking?
