>> Why three letters define the market.

Processing of WPC wood plastic composites

ZSK and STS – three letters suffice as the embodiment of modern processing technology for WPC wood plastic composites. Our twin screw extruders have proven themselves successfully in the market for the production of WPC wood plastic composites for many years.

As a long-standing partner to the wood fiber industry, Coperion, formerly Werner & Pfleiderer, is well-known for its extensive process and system know-how with which every process step of the compounding plants is adapted individually to the application: from filling and reinforcement to devolatilization.

Coperion implements solutions for the production of WPC wood plastic composites which are tailor made for your individual application - from the laboratory twin screw extruder to the industrial production plant in modular design.

Typical applications for the processing of wood plastic composite

Filling and reinforcement with 40-70 % wood
Filling and reinforcement with natural fibers such as flax, hemp, cellulose
Compounding for injection molding applications
Compounding in inline injection molding
Compounding in the inline press process
Profile extrusion with WPC profiles
