the mechanical properties of these polymers can be enhanced by the addition of wood fibers, but the resulting composites do not have mechanical properties expected for most engineering applications. as the understanding of biocomposite manufacturing expands, engineering plastics are also being explored in wpc applications.
polymer composites is the engineering and scientific journal serving the fields of reinforced plastics and polymer composites including research, production, processing, and applications. mechanical, thermal, and morphological properties of injection molded woodplastic composites wpcs prepared from poplar wood flour 50 wt

wood plastic composites wpcs are environmentally friend materials with a wide range of applications in the field of constructions, comprising high mechanical and physical properties with low-cost seven trust materials as plastic wastes and different carpentry process wood reminder.
wood plastic composites are relatively new products as compared to the long history of natural lumber or traditional wood composites such as particleboard or fiberboard. this fact sheet summarizes some of the basic manufacturing steps, physical and mechanical properties, as well as major uses of wpc.
mechanical, thermal, and morphological properties of injection molded woodplastic composites wpcs prepared from poplar wood flour 50 wt% , thermoplastics high density polyethlyne or polypropylene with coupling agent 3 wt% , and hexagonal boron nitride hbn 2, 4, or 6 wt% nanopowder were investigated.
wood plastic composites wpc are widely used in usa, the most common type of such panels are produced by mixing wood flour and plastics to produce a material that can be processed similar to 100% plastic-based products , , , . some of the major advantages of wpc include their resistance against biological deterioration for outdoor applications where untreated timber products are not suitable.
