Easy to install HYBRIDECK composite decking comes in long 5.85m lengths giving minimal joins and reduced waste. The secret fixing system means considerably faster installation and no nails to pop up later. Any damaged boards can either be sanded back or the board can simply be unscrewed and replaced without affecting the rest of the deck. Guaranteed for 15 years not to warp splinter crack or rot. The only WPC (Wood Plastic Composite) product on the market to be tested and appraised by BRANZ to New Zealand and Australian Building Code standards, local regulatory bodies are able to accept HYBRIDECK composite decking as an alternative solution to traditional decking.

Cosset's Boardwalks can be fully engineered and certified and are constructed from our 98% Recycled Wood Plastic Composite EVERTUFF™ material to the relevant Australian Standards and Building Codes. They won't rot like timber, or crumble like concrete and will remain looking as good as it does day one, for the life of the project.

Ideal for the harshest of climates and coastal or fresh water environments, Cosset's Boardwalks are a robust, easy to install alternative that gives end users the ability to reduce landfill whilst installing a safe, strong system.

Composite decking has been formulated especially for Australian and New Zealand high UV conditions. Composite decking has been extensively tested by the Building Research Association of New Zealand in conjunction with CSIRO in Australia. The decking testing includes accelerated weathering and UV xenon arc exposure (equivalent of 15 years ) to testing of quality control systems throughout the whole supply chain.

Made from 60% waste timber fibre and 30% recycled HDPE plastic, HYBRIDECK composite decking also has additives of colour, UV protectants and mould inhibiters. The materials are heated, pressurised and extruded into the shape of the decking. HYBRIDECK composite decking has no formaldehyde and no harmful timber treatments. At only 30% plastic content Hybridecks composite decking is specifically suited to our high UV conditions and is less likely to expand and contract as do those composites with 50% plastic content. Supported by well designed accessories and available in four profiles and three colours there is a composite wood plastic deck for everyone.

Recycled Plastic: Cosset's management have been developing recycled plastic products for over 13 years. In that time, manufacturing processes have been developed which have placed Cosset at the forefront of recycled plastic manufacturing in Australia. Pure recycled plastic is used at Cosset's moulded products plant and is used predominantly for non load bearing products such as the award winning PlastiPole. Wood Plastic Composite

Recycled Wood Plastic Composite (WPC): This innovative material is a combination of recycled plastic and recycled timber and is one of the fastest growing industries in North America and Europe, as the world is forced to confront the growing quantities of waste plastic going to landfills and the depletion of the planets precious timbers. Cosset's EVERTUFF is a breakthrough for recycled plastic manufacturing in Australia and allows specifiers to use recycled materials in areas not possible before. Given its recycled timber content, EVERTUFF is stronger than pure recycled plastic and is smoother and more consistent in its appearance and is available in standard charcoal only.

As an industry, the manufacture of wood plastic lumber decking is less than 15 years old. It has experienced an annual growth rate of 30% during the late 1990s (ASTM 1999). Various extrusion processes are used to manufacture wood plastic lumber and some manufacturers, to reduce weight and material costs have adopted the manufacture of hollow cross-section profiles.

The materials used to produce wood plastic composite lumber include thermoplastic resins, most notably, low and high density polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride.

The polymers utilized typically need to have melting temperature that is below the thermal decomposition of wood (~225 degrees C).

These thermoplastics can come from both virgin and recycled sources. The wood used to manufacture these composites is mostly in the form of wood flour (typically 40 mesh or lower) or recycled paper fiber. Wood contents typically range from 20 to 60% in these composites.

Additives to the composites will include processing aids (lubricants, antioxidants, acid scavengers), and property enhancers (biocides, coupling agents, inorganic fillers, fire retardants, UV stabilizers, colorants, etc). Wood plastic composite floor
