Best mixture of plastic timber

12/10/2018 at 22:05

I have seen some videos where they add different plastics and other materials like wood dust, crushed stone to make the plastic timber stronger.

Does anyone know the best receipt for super strong plastic timber?

Can you add crushed glass into the mixture?

Hi. You could try shredding DVD’s or CD’s to use  as a filler. They should be shredded as fine as possible.

Melting point of glass is very high and would burn the wood. Also would be concerned about safety. There’s a maker of this product in Colorado called Trex lumber. Maybe they can help?

Oh really, I didnt know something like that existed. Thank you @recyclingcapeverde for drawing my attention to it and @distilledart for suggestion. I looked Trex up online and I think they are doing an amazing job .
