A number of beneficial physical and mechanical properties (such as strength, stiffness, fasteners holding ability, processability, attractive appearance etc.) as well as wide availability made wood one of the most widespread and commonly used construction and decoration materials.

Wood-plastic composite (shortened as WPC) is commonly used as a definition for all natural (wood, bast, leaf, seed, fruit and stalk) fibers filled plastic composites. In the context of this definition "wood" represents all fibrous materials of plant origin.
