Seminar on Wood Plastic Composite Products

Learn about Wood Plastic Composite Products and earn a Continuing Education HSW/SD/GBCI Credit

Wood-plastic composite products offer a compelling alternative to traditional wood cladding and architectural trim. These products replicate the look of natural wood but offer superior color retention and life-cycle performance while requiring little to no maintenance. This learning unit will provide an overview of wood-plastic composite cladding and trim, with an emphasis on the sustainability benefits.

Learning Objectives

After this course, you will be able to:
  1. Understand sustainable wood-plastic composite, its characteristics and types, and how it differs from traditional wood.
  2. Explain the manufacturing process involved in producing sustainable wood-plastic composite.
  3. Describe the appropriate applications and main benefits of sustainable wood-plastic composite in trim and cladding applications.
  4. Discuss the sustainable features and benefits in both the manufacturing process and life cycle of sustainable wood-plastic composite when specified for cladding and trim applications.
  5. Define the surface-burning characteristics of wood-plastic composite products and explain how they can be specified to achieve code compliance.
