Wood-plastic composite materials (WPC) are a very popular choice for terrace planks, façade elements, fences and screening systems. However, these durable alternatives to pure high-maintenance wood and impersonal PVC can fade with weathering. This is the case especially when the material is subject to a combination of light and water splashes. If you allow the sun to fade WPC or use it as a border for your pool, the consequences are inevitable. Over time, UV light from the sun and moisture gradually destroy the top layer of the colour molecules. When this happens, you have just three options:
- Buy and install new WPC material.
- Do nothing and allow the WPC to fade.
- Attempt to paint the WPC.
