    3 popular types of plastic wood

    There are many different recipes for manufacturing plastic wood and are classified according to factors such as the type of plastic and the coating included. Currently there are 3 popular types of plastic wood:

    • HDPE plastic wood without coating.
    • Polymer-coated HDPE plastic wood.
    • PVC plastic wood coated with ASA layer.

    HDPE plastic wood without coating

    This is first generation plastic wood, produced in one piece, without separation of layers. There is no coating but the product is still highly scratch resistant, durable and waterproof.

    Using HDPE - High Density Polyethylene plastic makes the product have high rigidity (HDPE plastic is stronger than PVC plastic, lower than PP plastic). In particular, HDPE is a plastic line with a high-density molecular structure, so it can withstand impact and stretch better than regular PE plastic. Thanks to the use of this type of plastic, the product resists insects, mold and rot well. In addition, it also helps the product withstand most acids, bases, and natural chemicals.

    Polymer-coated HDPE plastic wood

    This is second generation plastic wood, also known as 2 skin plastic wood. In addition to the core layer made from wood pulp, HDPE plastic and additives, the product is also covered with a comprehensive protective Polymer layer. The product has higher stability than the uncoated type and has a greater variety of colors.

    Polymer coating helps protect the product from water, limits fading due to ultraviolet rays and provides high scratch resistance.

    PVC plastic wood coated with ASA layer

    This is plastic wood made from wood pulp, PVC resin and additives. Because PVC plastic has a lower strength than PE plastic, it is only recommended for use as cladding panels. In addition, to have good weather resistance, the product must be coated with an additional layer of ASA - Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate.

    ASA usually has a thickness of 0.2 - 0.3mm to meet quality requirements. Too thin will cause white lines along the grain to appear, too thick will cause the product to warp. This is a material used in the production of cars and roof tiles, so it has excellent UV protection and moisture resistance, keeping the product's color durable.

    ASA plastic wood has a smooth surface so it rarely stains and is easy to clean. Above all, the coating also helps the product have more colors.
