Informative Article on Wood Plastic Composite Door

T. Daniel Raj


Abstract: Solid wood doors or natural wood doors have been in use for number of decades. But as time changed other doors such a hollow core door, Laminated Core Flush Door, Framed and Panelled Doors came into picture. Though these doors may look good they are not viable on long run for countries like India because of varying climatic condition, wood tends to expand and contract when subjected to heat and another drawback of using solid wood is that wooden doors suffer from termite exposure. The production and use of alternative materials such as plastic as a composite material in wood represents a great opportunity to ensure greater sustainability in the construction sector. An alternative use of wooden door will be wood plastic composite door which is resistant to exposure of termite. The first company in the world that invented and patented the process to create WPC was Covema of Milan in 1960, founded by Terragni brothers (Dino and Marco). Plastic is an excellent alternative material to the existing solid wood doors. In today’s world the waste generated from industries is the huge concern for the environment, health, and cause for land filling. Recycling of plastic wastes and using them in construction materials appears to be viable solution not only to the pollution problem but also an economical option in construction.
