As a new type of wood-like material, HPC has the dual advantages of wood and plastic. The development of HPC industry can not only improve the utilization rate of agricultural and forestry solid waste, but also realize the sustainable development of wood, and help carbon balance, carbon peak.

What is HPC?
He-Plastic Composite (HPC) is a kind of fibrous high-filling material obtained by composite modification with proprietary mixing equipment, based on haulm, straw, reed and other herb plants and polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride and other thermoplastic resins.

What are the advantages of HPC?
The highest content of plant fibers reaches 80%, which has the characteristics of no decay, no insects, good weather resistance, and flexible processing; and it has high mechanical properties, low water absorption, no deformation, no warping, and high nail-holding force; It can be sawed, nailed, riveted, and planed like wood; it can be extruded, injected, and recycled like plastic.
The “He Plastic” composite material made of straw fiber also solves the problem of a large amount of crop straw incineration, turning waste into treasure.

The application fields of He-plastic composite materials
He-plastic composite materials have the advantages of low water absorption, high nail-holding force, not easy to deform, not easy to warp, etc., and can be widely used in building materials, garden landscape, home decoration, furniture panels, floor substrates, logistics packaging, transportation facilities and other fields. Specifically, outdoor gardens include park benches, pavilions, bridges, fences, etc.; construction fields such as door and window products, floors, decorative wall panels, etc.; pallets for packaging and logistics industries; auto parts such as flame-retardant reinforced modified plastics Alternatives; traffic areas such as signs, etc.

The market space of He-plastic composite material
The He-plastic composite material market has a broad development space. On the one hand, He-plastic composite material can gradually replace wood to achieve sustainable development of wood. In 2020, my country’s wood consumption will be about 800 million cubic meters, of which nearly 70% of the wood depends on imports. On the other hand, He-plastic composite materials can improve the utilization rate of agricultural solid waste and solve the problem of straw incineration. My country is a large agricultural country. With the increase of annual grain output, the output of straw is also increasing, and it has reached 1 billion tons per year at this stage.
According to estimates, China will consume 1 billion tons of wood in 2021. If calculated with a 20% replacement rate of He-plastic materials, the future He-plastic materials market will exceed 200 million tons, and the output value will reach more than 1.5 trillion yuan.
From the perspective of industry prospects, the fillers used in He-plastic material will not be woody plants, but mainly herbaceous plants, so that the problem of wood shortage can be solved and the sustainable development of wood can be realized; “He-plastic” composite material made of straw fibers, It also solves the problem of mass incineration of crop straws, turning waste into treasure, and complies with national policy orientation. Overall, with the expansion of the He-plastic composite material industry scale and the improvement of market awareness, the He-plastic composite material market has a very broad space.
