This document specifies the characteristics of cladding profiles and tiles made from cellulose-based materials and thermoplastics, usually called wood-polymer composites (WPC) or natural fibre composites (NFC), for external use.
This document is applicable to extruded profiles but also to tiles manufactured by other plastics processing techniques, e.g. injection moulding.
It is not applicable to support rail profiles, cover strip profiles and fastener devices.
This document also specifies assessment methods, provisions for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of these products and includes requirements for marking.
Reprocessed and/or recycled materials can be used for manufacturing the components which comply with the requirements of this part of EN 15534.
NOTE 1 WPC materials are recyclable materials which can be treated in a material recovery process intended to save resources while minimizing harmful emissions into air, water and soil as well as their impacts on human health.
NOTE 2 A scheme for the characterization of plastics waste is given in EN 15347 and guidelines for the recovery and recycling are given in ISO 15270.
