PS Plastic Lumber User Guide:
Decking
  1. ToolUse general woodworking tools, electric drill、self drill、countersink、sawing machine….
  2. Cutting processWoodworking cutter speed is about 3600RPM. It needs to use tungsten carbide saw blade which diameter is 10 ~ 12" and sawtooth is 36 ~ 42 teeth, the less tooth of the blade, the easier for the machine to cut-off and discharge residue. When processing, you can spray anti rust oil (WD-40) on the saw blade to avoid crumbs with sticky.
  3. Burrs repairYou can use fine sandpaper, knives or scissors to grind or scrape for cutting off the burrs.
  4. FoundationWith C-type steel (100x50-2.3 mm thick) or steel square tube (1 1/2 "- 2 mm thick) is the best. The thickness of deck board is more than 2.5cm: the interval between the crossbeams is 40cm. The thickness of deck board is more than 2cm: the interval between the crossbeams is 30-35cm.【See the picture below】If it is flat, crossbeam can be directly fixed on the ground.
  5. Fasteners floor fixed methodNeed to use screws, do not use nail gun or nails to fix. Steel structure base with tapping screw, decking foundation use wood screws; Screw specifications for #8 (diameter is about 4.2 mm), the length of the screw should be 2-3 cm longer than fastener; It needs two pieces of fasteners to fix at connection of boards. Also, it needs to be left 2-3 mm gap in winter, but without the gap in summer.
  6. MaintenanceWipe it with water or wood floor cleaner.

Wall board
  1. ToolUse general woodworking tools, electric drill、self drill、countersink、sawing machine….
  2. Cutting processWoodworking cutter speed is about 3600RPM. It needs to use tungsten carbide saw blade which diameter is 10 ~ 12" and sawtooth is 36 ~ 42 teeth, the less tooth of the blade, the easier for the machine to cut-off and discharge residue.

  3. Burrs repairYou can use fine sandpaper, knives or scissors to grind or scrape for cutting off the burrs.
  4. Column and crossbeamUsing steel structure is the best. The interval between the pillar is about 1m to 1.5m, and the interval between the crossbeam is around 50cm.
  5. Wall board fixed methodUse tapping screw. Drill hole with 5mm self-drilling first, and then use screws which is #10, the diameter is about 4.8 mm. The length of screw needs to be 2-3 cm longer than wallboard and it can’t be fixed with nail gun or iron nail.【See the picture below】
  6. MaintenanceWipe it with water or wood floor cleaner.

Railing
  1. ToolUse general woodworking tools, electric drill、self drill、countersink、sawing machine….
  2. Cutting processWoodworking cutter speed is about 3600RPM. It needs to use tungsten carbide saw blade which diameter is 10 ~ 12" and sawtooth is 36 ~ 42 teeth, the less tooth of the blade, the easier for the machine to cut-off and discharge residue. When processing, you can spray anti rust oil (WD-40) on the saw blade to avoid crumbs with sticky.
  3. Burrs repairYou can use fine sandpaper, knives or scissors to grind or scrape for cutting off the burrs.
  4. PillarUse the 100x100 square column and the interval between the pillar is around 1m to 1.5m with specific fixed foot. Using the M8×5”screw and nut to fix the square column, then using  expansion screws fixed on the ground 【See the picture below】When fixing the screws, you also can use the plastic cap to hide the screws and nuts.
  5. LatticeUse the 100x40 board and the interval between each one is around 15-20cm.【See the picture below】
  6. Lattice beamUse 100x40 board as a beam to fix the lattice with #10 x 2-1/2 in., the diameter of 4.8 mm screw.
  7. MaintenanceWipe it with water or wood floor cleaner.

Material Comparison

Item Natural wood Wood-Plastic Composite PS Plastic Lumber
Material Wood HDPE PP PVC PS
Density of fresh material -------- 0.95/cm3 0.9 /cm3 1.2 /cm3 1.05 /cm3
Density 0.5-0.7/cm3 1.3 ~1.4/cm3 0.65-0.7/cm3   (Similar to natural wood, but lightweight.)
Physical properties analysis Up until 2004, almost all residential decks were framed with pressured–treated lumber with Chromated-Copper Arsenate (CCA).
(NOTE:CCA was phased out due to environmental and health concerns)
Lower strength and stiffness. Contain 40~80% wood fiber, CaCO3 powder, hull, some natural fibers, etc.

Good rigidity of the materials.

It made from 100% virgin plastic resin with some additives, such as anti-aging formula and UV stabilizers.
External It will obscure the wood grain with CCA It's processed twice, so the texture becomes shallow and it's easy to be worn away. Look and feel like plastic. Realistic 3D wooden texture on all 4 sides, and obvious wood grain
Water absorption rate Extremely high, about 5% High, about 2-3% Extremely low, about 0.3 % and water will evaporate naturally.
Wet environments Rot, mildew, crack, splinter, etc Rot, mildew, crack, splinter, etc. Waterproof, mildew-proofing, mothproofing and won’t warp, crack, splinter, etc.
Advantages Cheapest。 Cheaper due to its wood fiber /CaCO3 powder and thermoplastics in the mix.
(Wood fiber: about¥640 per ton、CaCO3 powder: about¥960 per ton)
It made from 100% HIPS features a zero-sheen, realistic 3D wooden texture on all 4 sides, and is 100% recyclable due to its pure material.
Defects It poses health risk to people and will still rot or crack even with wood preservatives.

The product is heavy due to its wood fiber/CaCO3 powder in the mix.
It's easy to rot, mildew, crack, splinter, warp and the color fades easily. Short lifespan.

It made from 100% virgin plastic resin without wood fiber. As the cost is high, the selling price is expensive.
Common problems Extremely high water absorption rate, and it's easy to rot, mildew, crack, splinter, warp, etc. It's worn away easily due to its shallow texture. High water absorption rate, and it's easy to rot, mildew, crack, splinter, warp, etc. It's normal that the boards will expand or contract during big temperature difference. But it won’t happen if you have the proper design and construction.
Maintenance In order to recover its original external, it needs to be painted. Short lifespan and no specific ways to maintain it. It's maintenance-free if you build it properly.
Influence Non-Recyclable Materials. Burying or burning it will lead to water, land, or air pollution and endanger human health. It's not recyclable due to its complicated ingredients

100% recyclable
It's environmentally friendly

Conclusion It poses a risk to human who are in contact with the arsenic lumber. Thus, US EPA suggests that the public must wash hands after exposing to any wooden products, especially children. Also, it needs to paint transparent lacquer at least once a year to prevent form environmental pollution. Generally speaking, after 1-2 years, it will start to rot, mildew, crack, splinter or warp, etc.

It made from 100% virgin plastic resin.

It is widely used in any environments, especially in wet environments, such as beach or lake, etc.
