UPM WPC 2017: Product innovations
The 2017 terrace season has begun! The Weltholz team underwent training at the UPM ProFi-Werk Bruchsal in order to answer all your questions and see to every possible need regarding the latest developments in WPC terraces.
Jörg Rohrleitner and Edward Robinson from UPM elaborated on product innovations – starting with the 2017 terrace season there are cover caps for ProFi Deck 150 as well as heating cables. The installation training course was carried out by Stephan David from the UPM technical department. The focus of the event was on "10 years of UPM ProFi Deck 150 as a functioning hollow chamber board" and "UPM Lifecycle – 25 years of product experience with a unique recycling material."
The speakers and the Weltholz team looked back on 10 years of good experience with UPM ProFi Deck. Although the boards have been continuously improved, the idea behind UPM ProFi Deck has remained the same: a fresh, modern look combined with the fulfillment of the highest performance requirements. Due to its innovative use of recycled materials, UPM ProFi Deck has already won several international awards.
UPM ProFi Deck 150 is characterized by a fresh and modern look, lignin-free color fastness, better stain resistance, an extremely durable core, the possibility of a zero degree slope, high impact strength as well as improved, splinter-free scratch resistance. In addition, there is good slip resistance (wet or dry). The material is recycled and recyclable.
An installation course with many professional tips rounded out the event. Stephan David, International Product Manager, demonstrated the installation of the cover caps for ProFi Deck 150 and the newly developed UPM terrace heating cable, among others.
Material description, installation tips and a list of all the accessories can be found in the current UPMProFi brochure.
