Plastic Lumber Basics

Plastic Lumber is typically 100% HDPE (High-density polyethylene) and is a 100% synthetic material.  The chemical properties of HDPE give it excellent resistance to many acids, alcohols and bases.  Follow this link to see a complete list of chemicals that will and wont effect HDPE.  Visit the Plastic Lumber Frequently Asked Questions Page.

When your in the market for plastic lumber ask these questions…

  • Is the material 100% synthetic?
  • What are the dimensional tolerances?
  • Is it a premium grade finish, or a utility grade rough finish?
  • Is the center core of the board porous or solid?  If you plan on routing the edges etc the center core needs to be solid to make an attractive edge.
  • Is the color all the way through or is it co-extruded?
  • Is the material mixed with virgin grade plastic or is it 100% recycled?
  • Are their any fillers used to reduce raw materials cost? (this can effect the long term life of the plastic)
