Wood Polymer Composites (WPC) combine polymers with wood fibres creating a material that combines the inherent properties of timber with the following additional performance characteristics:
Consistency- As an engineered solution WPC profiles have even density through the length and cross section of the profile, eliminating internal voids and weak spots.
Stability- WPC is self-skinning, forming a smooth surface improving the weathering of the profile, reducing bowing, cracking or warping.
Reduced Water Absorption- WPC is not as susceptible to changing moisture levels in the environment, reducing the possibility of the material splinting and splitting.
Improved Weathering- UV stable. When exposed to accelerated weathering conditions, in accordance with EN 607, WPC demonstrated outstanding performance.
Less susceptible to rot- The reduced moisture retention in the WPC contributes to the product being less likely to suffer from rotting.
RAL colour options- WPC can be extruded in a range of RAL colours
Onsite alterations- WPC can be screwed, nailed, glued and pinned and additional alternations can be made using standard joinery tools.
These performance characteristics and the associated lower maintenance costs are seeing WPC being used in applications that were traditionally timber based.
WPC Technical Overview
WPC is an engineered solution incorporating extenders to improve and maintain profile stability and material density. The natural wood fibres are chemically bound within the formulation to enhance durability making it an ideal material for internal and external applications.
All Reddiplex profiles are manufactured under a factory controlled conditions to predetermined specifications increasing overall quality consistency.
WPC Extrusion Capabilities
The design and tooling department will work with you to compile a set of manufacturing parameters to ensure that the product is dimensionally correct for your application.
Our knowledge of WPC processing, onsite tooling and customer service provides a comprehensive package when it comes to the extrusion of WPC offering:
As a highly capable extruder of bespoke profiles since 1969, Reddiplex have built a global reputation for its UK manufacturing. Whether it’s rigid and flexible plastics or solid and sponge rubbers, our skilled team boasts wide ranging specialist expertise.
Expert guidance & project management
Offering a bespoke extrusion service, utilising our extensive knowledge we will guide you from initial design, bespoke tooling and intricate trials, prior to handing over to our production team, once they are 100% happy with the result. We can control and monitor the complete project without external involvement, maintaining high levels of confidentiality for your business.
We have 36 different extruding lines operating on our Droitwich site, allowing us to offer:
Single material extrusion
Dual material extrusion
Triple material extrusion
To support the extensive range of materials we extrude we have a range of curing techniques ranging from water and air cooling through to microwave and ballotini curing.
Our constant investment in downstream equipment enables us to offer a comprehensive portfolio of inline capabilities and secondary processes including:
Application of lubricant and adhesive tape
Experience in many materials
Our diversity of material choice is unrivalled in the market and helps Reddiplex to deliver unique, complex extrusions across a raft of different market sectors including: external facades, internal glazing, conservatories, windows and doors.
Standard product ranges have also developed from our specialist custom extrusion work over time and we’re able to offer a range of partitioning, glazing and pile based profiles.
We’re committed to quality management and minimising the impact of our activities on the environment. We hold ISO internationally recognized standards for our Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Environmental Management Systems (EMS).
