Teel Plastics, Baraboo, Wis., specializes in tight-tolerance profiles extruded of wood-filled plastic. Its newest product is believed to be a unique wood/plastic window and door trim that’s clad with real wood veneer. The profile is 50/50 wood and PP foamed to a density of 0.98 g/cc (vs. 1.2 g/ cc solid), adding stiffness and better holding force for nails and screws. The profile is wrapped off-line with either wood veneer or paintable white PVC film, both slit from roll stock. The result is woodworking trim that can be painted or varnished like wood.
