What is Fully Capped Composite Decking?

in Capped Composite Decking Tips 2021-07-08

Capped composite decking is popular. It is made of recycled wood and plastics and is covered with plastic protective layers. Unlike solid wood, they are almost maintenance-free, which is an ideal choice for your outdoor space. But do you know that there are different types of capped composite decking:

  • Top Half Capped
  • Top and Bottom Capped, Groove No Cap
  • Fully Capped

The former two types are also called capped composite decking, but the cover does not extend to the bottom and groove side of the board. In a variety of adverse weather conditions, UV, moisture, and mold may cause damage to the composite decking. In a humid environment, water is not only absorbed at the top but on all sides. In that case, the uncovered part of the Half Capped may continue absorbing moisture, which may eventually make the board crack or deform as time goes on.

Techwoodn’s fully capped composite decking provides comprehensive protection against water penetration. For the core part of the decking, we use recycled plastic particles and wood, mixing and turning them into high-performance composite materials. The cap part is covered with 100% plastic, and the core materials are wrapped in the cladding through our unique technics. Fully capped composite decking has higher performance and is more resistant to dying, fading, and scratching.

In addition, Techwoodn’s capped composite decking can be installed with either side up. You can choose between grooves or wood grain for your design choice and make it more visually appealing.
