New Insect-proof and Antibacterial Plastic Wood Composite Floor
In recent years, people have higher and higher decoration products requirements to improve people's living standards. At the same time, people's needs for environmental protection and health are higher and more urgent. At home, most people lay on the floor. The underfloor has become the most concealed, largest, and most difficult indoor environmental pollution source—the ground, floor mats, and the floor form inconspicuous and neglected hygiene. Dead corners are condensed with germs, insects, mites, ants, and other organisms and microorganisms, directly threatening people's health. The existing treatment method is to sprinkle traditional pesticides under the floor. Although this method is useful for preventing pests, the pesticides themselves have toxic side effects. Even if they have passed the agricultural department's inspection and obtained the production license, they are only limited to agriculture and forestry. These treatments are not allowed to be used in the home living environment. Another hygienic corner is in home decoration. People like to lay carpets on the ground. Because the rug is not moved for a long time, it is easy to generate germs, insects, mites, and ants under the carpet and floor.
Antibacterial agents can be divided into inorganic antibacterial agents, organic antibacterial agents, polymer antibacterial agents, and composite antibacterial agents. Different antibacterial agents have different antibacterial action mechanisms and effectiveness against the same pathogens, and the same antibacterial agents have different antibacterial action mechanisms and inhibitory ranges for different pathogens. To improve the corrosion resistance of wpc deck flooring and improve its antibacterial properties, many scholars at home and abroad began to add various antibacterial agents to wood-plastic composite materials to enhance the anti-corrosion and antibacterial properties of composite materials.
At present, with the continuous improvement of people's health requirements, the safety and environmental protection of raw materials can no longer meet people's needs, and the antibacterial function of furniture and indoor and outdoor floors has become an irreversible trend. Since each antibacterial agent has different antibacterial mechanisms and advantages and disadvantages, the antiseptic and antibacterial effects of plastic-wood composites are also different. By analyzing anticorrosive and antibacterial plastic-wood composite materials' research status, domestic and foreign researchers increasingly favor polymer antibacterial agents and various composite antibacterial agents due to their superior antibacterial properties.
