Quickly assembled, safe and inexpensive – houses made of WPC profiles

As the main sponsor, battenfeld-cincinnati impressed the international visitors from 24 countries again this year with its live demonstration during the successful WPC conference organized by Applied Market Information Ltd. (AMI), Bristol, UK. 110 visitors came to Vienna to gather information about the latest developments in the wood-plastic composites sector from presentations, exhibits and the demonstration of a WPC line at the technical lab of battenfeld-cincinnati Austria. They were not disappointed. This year, the main focus lay on the topical subject of “WPC profile production for temporary housing”. A “Simply Housing” model house from TechWood International, UK, was showcased, and an H profile extruded, which is used as a connecting element in the house construction.

The H profile was manufactured from a blend of 72% wood fiber and 28% PP Download
The formulation had an extremely low bulk density of 270 g/l and was processed in the form of an agglomerate Download
The agglomerate was compounded cost-efficiently in a heating/cooling mixer system; it was subsequently fed into the extruder without a dosing unit, simply by using the hydrostatic pressure of the material (shown in the picture: material feeding unit in operation, half-filled with WPC agglomerate) Download
