The use of wood-plastic composites is growing rapidly, as consumers experience their advantages over wood including low or no routine maintenance and no cracking, warping or splintering. Additive use is growing as wood-plastic composites penetrate new markets with more stringent performance requirements and as interest in long-term stability of composite products increases.
