What exactly is capped composite decking?
Composite decking suppliers are now more likely to use capped composite decking boards. This is because they don’t just look like wood. And they are also very long-lasting and durable, and they don’t need a lot of care. Composite decking that is capped is made of traditional composite wood and a durable polymer shell. Capped composite decking won’t chip, crack, or rot like pressure-treated wood decking.
It won’t be eaten by pests, and it doesn’t need to be sanded, stained, or refinished. For everyday use, all you need to do is clean it with soap once in a while to make it look new. In addition, composite decking is very resistant to stains and fades. So you can keep it looking good with very little work.

Features of capped composite decking boards
Covered composite decking has come a long way since the early days when composite decking was left bare. It now has a layer of polymer to protect it. This PVC casing adds extra protection because it is more resistant to water and mildew. Also, this capping has UV inhibitors that add extra strength and resilience.
Of course, when we say capping, we don’t mean something that is added after the composite decking is made. Rather, the cap is bonded to the core during the manufacturing process of the composite deck.
How is capped composite decking made?
To make capped composite decking, a process called co-extrusion must be used. The co-extrusion process makes a strong, flexible composite deck that looks good for a long time. In the process of making capped composite decking. We carefully mix wood and plastic together to make a strong, dense core. Then, a single, strong polymer cap is glued around the wood-plastic core. The core is then molded together with a non-living surface material to make an excellent performance-capped composite deck.
This product is made up of a unique mix of premium non-reactive color pigments, UV inhibitors, antioxidants, and mildew inhibitors. The capped composite decking has great resistance to sunlight, stains, mold, and bacteria because of the combination of these things.
It also makes sure that the decking compound will last for a long time and have a great color. Streaks of different colors can be seen when colored pigments are added at specific times during the manufacturing process. This is why we have a lot of different types of composite decking to choose from. Such as redwood composite decking, blue composite decking, teak composite decking, and other types of composite decking.
Benefits of capped composite decking
Environmentally friendly and long-term
Another thing that makes capped composite decking unique is that it is environmentally friendly, long-lasting, and made mostly of recycled materials. Composite decking is made from materials that have been reused. Wood fibers can be made from waste from lumber mills. And plastic can be made from plastic waste that is made during everyday life. Using these recycled materials stops more trees from being cut down. At the same time, it stops a lot of plastic waste from getting into the environment.
In addition to enhanced durability and performance, four-sided capping means more versatility. This outdoor deck is reversible, which offers several advantages over non-reversible boards. For example, it has less sheet cutting and less material waste. It can also be embossed with different textures on both sides of the deck, thus increasing design options and visual appeal.
They also have a polished look on the top and bottom, which makes them good for a second deck. In addition, they have grooved edges for hidden screws. Hidden fasteners give your deck a smooth, fastener-free surface. And giving your outdoor deck a more appealing look.
