The WPC floor decking is mainly composed of wood (wood cellulose, plant cellulose) as a base material with thermoplastic polymer material (PE plastic) and processing additives, high-tech green environmental protection material mixed evenly and then by heating extrusion mold equipment made of the performance and characteristics of both wood and plastics. It can replace wood and plastic can be used in landscape gardening, wall decoration, floor, fence, pavilion ect ! What should we pay attention to when installing WPC floor decking?
The WPC Construction Notice:
1. WPC can be cut, sawed, drilled, tenon by common woodworker.
2. With the expansion of wood keel tube will be fixed on the floor, the expansion pipe spacing 500mm-600mm, screw cap below the wooden keel surface, wooden keel fixed need to do the whole flat.
3. You can use tapping screws between wood and wood. It is suggested that we can use stainless steel self tapping screws; wood and steel should use self drilling tapping screws.
4. When using self tapping screw between WPC floor decking, we should first pre -bored hole. The diameter of the pre borehole should be less than 3/4 of the diameter of the screw.
5. When installing outdoor floor decking, it needs a screw between the WPC and each keel.
6. The transfer point of WPC floor decking and keel uses plastic clips to connect WPC floor decking and keel.
The Installation Of WPC Floor Decking:
1.WPC floor decking has a slight thermal expansion. Considering cleaning, when installing WPC floor decking, the edges and ends must have the proper gap. The reservation of the gap is closely related to the climate and temperature in the construction period.
2.When installing WPC floor decking, it’s better to install on the keel. According to the thickness of the profile (20MM-40MM), the gap between the keels is generally between 400MM-500MM.
WPC floor decking is more stable than wood floor which is not easy to crack up. It has a good performance of waterproof, damp proof and anti-corrosion. The price is low but also convenient to maintain. So WPC floor decking is increasingly used in home furnishing. The above is about the introduction about construction technology and notices, hoping to help you.
