WPC / NFC profiles

NFC are composite products consisting of natural fibers, mainly thermoplastic polymers and additives to improve and tailer the required properties to the end application. WPC is a sub-category of NFC, indicating that the fiber originates from a wood source. Formulations using more than 20% fiber fall under the definition of WPC/NFC (in terms of processing equipment).

Together with its worldwide network of competent partners, battenfeld-cincinnati offers solutions to process a wide variety of raw material combinations. The modular extruder concept of the fiberEX series has been designed particularly for WPC/NFC extrusion and can be used for direct extrusion as well as the two-step production process.

WPC/NFC end products are often a substitute for wood products. They are used primarily in the outdoor sector, although indoor applications are gaining in importance.
