wood-plastic composite - an overview sciencedirect topics

wood-plastic composite. wood plastic composites (wpcs) are composites manufactured from predominantly (typically synthetic) thermoplastic resins and wood flour filler, though thermoset resins and naturally derived resin systems may also be used. and this capacity rose to 260,000 in 2012 (spear and eder, 2015; schwarzkopf and burnard

green, economic, and partially biodegradable wood plastic

lignocellulosic fibers, which obtained from citrus trees trimmings, were modified with aspergillus flavus (egypta5) enzymes. the non-modified and the modified lignocellulosic fibers were used with low density polyethylene (ldpe) by melt blending brabender method at 170 °c with different ratio (5, 10 and 20 wt%) to obtain wood plastic composites (wpc).

wood plastic composites - a primer

in addition to various wood species, various other natural fibers have been included into fiber-plastic composites. examples include bast fibers (flax, hemp, jute, kenaf, ra-any species can be incorporated into wpcs. non-wood fibers can also be used.
