— During the initial stages, mono-extrusion technique was used in the decking industry. Only one material was extruded under extreme heat. Gradually, the product started fading and scratching. Co-extrusion technology was introduced to overcome these issues and ensure superior product quality.
Co-Extrusion decking is becoming more and more popular due to its enhanced performance and natural appearance. It is a type of composite decking product which is not harmful and extremely safe to use. The texture of a co-extruded surface offers resistance to slippery and fungal attack. Co-extrusion products come with a lot of colour variants to choose from.
Two or more type of materials are mixed and passed through a single die. They are extruded under high temperature and the end result is a single product. This product comprises of properties of all three ingredients (timber, plastic, and polymer) to deliver a durable product.
To make them look new, just a water wash with soap is enough. That’s the only maintenance activity which you should do once in a year. Titanium dioxide is also added to make it weather resistant. They can sustain harsh climatic conditions without any deterioration.
Decking surfaces are prone to damages due to foreign elements. The core of the product is made of recycled PE and timber. The main reason for combining 3 materials is to provide a protective layer for the decking surface. The shell polymer helps the deck resist scratches, splinters, fading, staining, and insect infestation. The outer layer is referred to as “cap”. That’s why; Co-extrusion decking is also called as “Capped composite decking”.
