Which is better - WPC or PVC?

WPC means Wood Plastic Composite. PVC means polymerization of vinyl chloride.

Obviously, going just by the name one cannot conclude which is a better choice between WPC and PVC Board. Thus, this blog by Amulya Mica, India’s fastest growing laminate brand summarizes all information related to WPC and PVC for the understanding of the end-users. Amulya Mica manufactures supplies and exports both WPC sheets and PVC laminates.

Wood Plastic Composite (WPC)

WPC is a hybrid composite material noted for its molding ability to any shape and size. It is primarily composed of plastic fiber and natural wood. WPC manufacturers in India confirm addition of sawdust, wood flour, bamboo, peanut hulls, pulp, and unused woodworking materials in the same.

Polymerization of Vinyl Chloride (PVC)

PVC is a durable long lasting material widely used in the building, transport, packaging, electrical and healthcare sector for its versatile usability.
