Types of Artificial Thatch

Now the use of artificial thatch is increasing. People’s understanding of artificial thatch including its advantages are gradually deepening. But there are still many consumers who are not very clear about the various types of artificial thatch and the differences between them. Below we will introduce the different types of artificial thatch.

How many types of Artificial Thatch?

According to the material, artificial thatch can be divided into two categories:

① PE plastic thatch

② Aluminum metal thatch

1. PE Plastic Thatch

To ensure long-lasting loft and a realistic look after installation, JY plastic thatch is made from high-quality PE plastic. The JY synthetic thatch offers benefits such as good visual effect, high realism, resistance to deformation, aging, mold, and fading. What’s more, JY also offers an upgraded version of PE thatch—our flame retardant series—which significantly enhances the safety in use.

However, there are some plastic thatches on the market made from substandard materials like recycled and waste plastics. Therefore, we recommend customers to request sample from manufacturers of synthetic thatch when purchasing plastic thatch and make some comparisons.
