Weathering Characteristics of Wood Plastic Composites Reinforced ...23 Jul 2016 ... This study investigated weathering performance of an HDPE wood plastic composite reinforced with extracted or delignified wood flour (WF). The wood flour was pre-extracted with three different solvents, toluene/ethanol (TE), acetone/water (AW), and hot water (HW), or sodium chlorite/acetic acid. The spectral properties of the composites before and after artificial weathering under accelerated conditions were characterized by Fou

Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) | BeologicThe denomination wood-plastic composites, WPC, is usually used to designate materials or products made of one or more natural fibres or flours and a polymer or a mixture of polymers. Natural fibres and flours come from different vegetable sources and all kinds of polymers (virgin or recycled) can be used. Create your composite. Advantages. Renewable resources; Natural feel; Tailoring with traditional wood tools; Available in several colours; Coloured in the mass; FSC or ...

Wood-plastic composites: current trends in materials and processing ...The global wood and natural fibre composites (WPC) market was 771 million kg (1.7 billion lbs) in 2003, says Jim Morton, partner at U.S.-based Principia Partners, a marketing and business consulting firm for the plastics and related industries that has organized a WPC conference for October 2005 in the U.S. Nearly 85% of the WPC market is in North America, primarily due to success in building product applications. WPC's aesthetic and 'low-maintenance' advantages over wood ...

Wood-plastic composite / Paper and wood composites | Budenheimwood-plastic composite. wood-plastic composites are modern composite materials that are widely used for furniture, benches and outdoor ground coverings. Unlike pure wood, they are water- and weather-resistant. Compared to pure plastics, they are more consolidated and expand less under thermal exposure. wood-plastic composites are composed of wood fibres or powder which are mixed with plastics and other additives. This means they can be adjusted to achieve certain ...
