Development of a Wood Plastic Composite Extruder - OMICS ...4 Sep 2017 ... Wood plastic composite (WPC) are materials made from a combination of saw dust, thermoplastic resin and chemical additives. [1]. WPCs are relatively new products as compared to the long history of natural lumber or traditional wood composites such as particleboard or fibreboard [2]. Wood in form of flour/particles/fibres/sawdust is combined with thermoplastic materials under specific heat and pressure for producing WPCs where additives are added for improved.

Structural properties of recycled plastic/sawdust lumber decking ...However, the structural properties of the plastic lumber are not well understood, and the use of plastic lumber in structural applications is not authorized in the common building codes. In this research effort, standard 2×6 plastic lumber planks were tested for many different structural properties. The plastic lumber tested was a blend of recycled plastic and sawdust. The tests were conducted at 23.3°C to simulate winter conditions, and at 40.6°C to simulate summer conditions.
