Wood & Natural Fiber Compounds

These materials are compounds of polymer and either wood flour or natural fibers from long-leaf plants. Polymers formulated with wood and fibers include PVC, PP and nylon, among others. Products produced from these formulations, such as decks and siding, are said to combine the functionality of plastics with the appearance of wood.
