This week I welcome Chris Camfferman, managing director of marketing for Deckorators, a company that manufactures composite decking using their patented "Eovations" technology. This technology provides the best stiffness-to-weight ratio and lowest thermal expansion/contraction of any thermoplastic deck board available.
Deckorators composite decking is composed of a mix of polypropylene and calcium carbonate, which is used instead of wood fiber to prevent moisture absorption and minimize thermal movement. In this process, the polymer-mineral blend is extruded and stretched. The resulting cavitation creates tiny air pockets that keep the board lightweight as it takes on a fiber-like structure similar to wood for superior strength.
The result is a fibrous composite board that looks and works like wood. At the same time, each board is:
On this interview, Chris will be sharing the background of Deckorators and how their Eovations technology is creating a superior product.
