I'm New but . . .[edit]

I( may be new to editing wiki pages but this article appears to be an advertisement. Is this allowed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.91.70.49 (talk) 16:17, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Agreed, needs some cleaning up. What it'd like to see is the second picture being replaced of a different brand to create a more neutral perspective and see the a

Uses[edit]

I have removed the comment that "WPCs behave like wood" This is certainly not true. I also moved some of the advantages and disadvantages to a new section, so they are not listed in the "uses" section, which doesn't seem right. Added a bunch of references, but it still needs more. The article could really used some discussion about the different uses in Asia and Europe. Scottrows (talk) 19:58, 23 December 2011 (UTC)scottrows

More information regarding WPC custom profile extrusion- Edit help requested[edit]

I have not made any changes to the actual article, but I do have additional input regarding wood plastic composite. I have been in the WPC industry for more than 25 years, and have spoken about this topic in both Asia and Europe in the past. I believe the article is missing a few other points that I would like to bring up (I did not make any changes as I am involved with a company that manufactures WPC products, and I did not want to have the appearance of a commercial or conflict of interest. Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) has a growing custom use segment, made possible by custom extrusion. The WPC materials can be co-extruded, or even tri-extruded to to provide dark color cap-stock options, as well as to add additional functionality to the part (ex: flexible fingers for gripping or sealing. Another important portion of the technology that is not currently discussed is the ability of some WPC products to be painted or stained. Articles about this technology can be found online at Plastics Machinery Magazine [1],Plastics News [2], as well as information on the Formtech website [3] such as a case study about products used a a door surround [4].
