mechanical or chemical bonding. The performance of wood plastic composite (WPC), made using either recycled polypropylene (rPP) or virgin PP together with wood sawdust (Pine flour), is evaluated and compared in terms of water absorption and thickness swelling and SEM . It is found that composites made..
The wood plastic composites (WPCs) are made using matrices of recycled polypropyl- ene with sawdust (pine wood . composite (WPC) made using either recycled polypropylene (rPP) or virgin poly- propylene (vPP) . the particulate composite. Chemical composition of pine flour is 'cellulose 40%, hemi-cellulose and other
2013) in comparison to wood-polymer composites. Turku and Karki (2014) investigated the effect of micro-sized glass fibers and CFs and nano-sized montmorillonite organoclay addition on the mechanical and physical properties of wood flour/PP composites. The addition of CFs did not affect the composite tensile strength

Jun 10, 2016 . 2 Wood-plastic composites. By definition, composite materials are formed by combining two or more constituent materials that have substantially different chemical or physical properties (Callister 2005). As a result, the individual components remain distinct within the finished material, and thus composites..
To understand wood-plastic composites (WPCs) adequately, we must first understand the two main constituents. Though both are polymer . In this chapter, we explore the basic structure and properties of polymers and wood individually to lay a foundation for a greater understanding of the composites made from them
Three types of inorganic fillers (talc, kaolin, and zinc-borate), which have been widely adopted in various applications, were used for manufacturing woodplastic composites (WPCs). The aim of this study is to understand the effects of filler shape, size, surface nature, and loading amount on the physical properties of WPCs

SUMMARY: We investigated the effects of species, wood type and fibre size on the mechanical and physical properties of wood plastic composites (WPC). Wood-based particles from three softwood species (white cedar, jack pine and black spruce) and three wood fibres (sapwood, heartwood and bark) were investigated
