STRUCTURAL LUMBER

Structural BM Reinforced Lumber Technical Data

Chemical Resistance – High-density polyethylene has a high resistance to most acids and chemicals. Plastic Lumber is not affected by exposure to most substances.

Ultraviolet Weathering – An ultraviolet stabilizer is also incorporated at the time of manufacture, which protects the plastic from ultraviolet light degradation. This insures that the outside of the product will not degrade in exterior applications.

Creep Data – Creep data show the deflection amount in percent strain from a load being applied to a specimen of plastic lumber over time. Reinforced Plastic Lumber has much lower deflection when a load is first applied and also has much reduced deflection over time with the load applied. This makes the reinforced lumber product much superior in applications that have higher structural demands.
