What is WPC board?

WPC boards are available with various names like ‘Construction boards’, ‘Crust foam boards’, ‘Calcium boards’, ‘WPC shuttering boards’ ‘WPC MDF boards’, WPC Plates, PVC foam boards, WPC sheets, WPC panels, WPC formwork panels etc. in global markets. WPC boards can be produced with flexible density range varies from 400 kg/cum to 900 kg/cum. Another important characteristic is the surface density of this product and which also can be adjusted between a range of 55 shore D to 85 shore D surface hardness.

Formulations play a major role in making WPC boards and that is the master key which allows it to be known by different names as above. JBD Company provides formulation services as well as manufacture readymade compounds for WPC boards. Saw mill dust, wood powder, Virgin & recycled plastics and additives are key components for making these composite boards.

These boards are covering a large application area starting from interior grade boards being used for making furniture, kitchen cabinets, kitchen shutters. Taking further, these boards are being used for making temporary shelters for government housing projects, construction site pavilions/shelters, low cost housing projects and other road and building projects.

Importantly in comparison to conventional plywood and MDF boards, WPC board doesn’t need a compulsory lamination for end user applications. These boards can be directly applicable with beautiful and technical harden surface properties in compare to even high pressure laminate applied surfaces. WPC PVC foam boards can be directly printed and UV coated for surface decoration. Ultraviolet treatment on the surface gives a long life in compare to HPL coated surfaces of MDF, Particle boards and Plywood. Moisture proof structure of WPC boards gets more mileage with Printing and UV coating.

Versatile product thickness ranges from 4 mm to 20 mm and various colors can be made available for variety of direct applications again. These solid or plain colored WPC boards are surely replacing the product coated with HPL (high pressure laminate conventionally known as Sunmica and Formica as generic names).
