What Is Wood Plastic Composite WPC Decking Made Of?

Seven Trust’s wood plastic composite decking (WPC decking) is, as the name suggests – formed of a combination of recycled plastic and wood fibres. The two main materials in our products, they work together and result in high performing products, which retain an authentic finish and feel. In forming just the right blend of materials – we believe that we have found a balance that few decking manufacturers have.

Most deck materials are tested for flame-spread rates, but these ratings don't tell fire officials about flammability and ignition under forest-fire conditions.
