We stock a huge range of plastic wood from thin sheets, flexible planks and reinforced posts to sturdy beams and sleepers and we can ship small quantities next day (no minimum order quantity).
Nearly all the recycled plastic supplied by Filcris Ltd is HDPE or High Density Polyethylene. The only exception to this is Stokbord, which is LDPE or Low Density Polyethylene and the mixed plastic used in the Ecohoarding sheet.
Polyethylene is a very tough, durable plastic which has high impact strength and is resistant to degradation by most acids and rot, as well as being maintenance free and chemically inert, so it is ideal for use in exterior, and especially wet or underground applications. It is tough, but very flexible, and it has a high coefficient of thermal expansion (it expands and contracts a lot with changes in temperature).
Recycled HDPE can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer in its exact properties but these general rules still apply.

"Delivery was spot-on. Planks were top-of -range, worked well, and easy to handle and cut. Top (wood) deck went down great, with any luck we'll now get more that the 15 years we hand out of the previous deck. Thanks for prompt service, fair price, and all round good quality product!"
