Recycled-Plastic Lumber Standards - The Society for Standards develop industry-consensus, performance-based standards that enable the market acceptance of recycled-plastic lumber Figure 1 - Material flow diagram for recycling of plastics into products. . properties and thermal expansion behavior, and other mechanical properties, are required for the design of effective and.
100% RECYCLED PLASTIC LUMBER BOARDWALKS of boards. We have span charts that can be used to determine the correct size for normal decking applications. If you have other applications please consult with us or a qualified engineer or architect so he can take into account the long term creep and deflection issues with FiberForce. ? plastic lumber. 2.

Bedford Technology? LLC Design Guide Recycled Plastic Lumber Jan 20, 2009 Background. Due to the unique characteristics of recycled plastic lumber, this design guide has been written, in Co-efficient of Thermal Expansion for Bedford FiberForce? & BarForce? Lumber = 0.00003 increases as the temperature rises therefore a temperature correction factor (Ct) (See Table 1) is.
Working with Recycled Mixed Plastic Lumber - Kedel Ltd Drilling. All fixing holes should be pre-drilled with an HSS or wood bit prior to screwing. A low drilling speed is recommended. Sawing. Recycled plastic can be sawn using a handsaw, circular saw or chop saw (including cross-cut mitre saws). A slow cutting speed with a medium tooth blade is best, for example a 305mm 60
Plastic Lumber - King County Recycled plastic lumber is a product made from recovered plastic or recovered plastic mixed with other decks & docks, landscape timbers, parking stops, picnic tables, benches, trash receptacles, planters, and numerous custom applications. Plastic Lumber Types. There are several types of plastic lumber: All Plastic.
Working with Recycled Mixed Plastic Lumber Trade Screw holes are best pre-drilled with a pilot hole using an HSS or wood drill bit and Kedel always countersink for the best finished appearance on their own products. Expansion Table. Maximum expansion (contraction) occurring per running metre: Temperature, 0°C, 5°C, 10°C, 15°C, 20°C, 25°C, 30°C, 35°C, 40°C. Max.
Installation Guides for plastic lumber, decking, and deck material With continued advancements to our formula, we have been able to improve our performance in both strength and expansion and contraction properties. Still, plastic is not as strong as wood, and, as a rule of thumb, you should plan to support plastic about 25% more than you would support wood. When using Bear Board
