composite fibre plastic material 11 - BCA11 composite FIBRE plastic MATERIAL. Natural wood has certain qualities that predispose its use in buildings, especially in outdoor applications. It is used in decks, docks, railings, porches, garden benches, walkways, stairs, pool surrounds and many other outdoor settings because of its strength, elegance and natural appearance which are aesthetically pleasing. Unfortunately, due to wide -spread deforestation, there are not many tropical forests left to meet the demand.

Physical and Mechanical Properties of WPC Board from Sengon ...[1] Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are obtaining a great attention in industrial sectors and academics due to their favorable properties, which include low density, low cost, renewability and recyclability as well as desirable mechanical properties. Nowadays WPC only used for non structural purpose such us flooring, decNing, fence and any other use. [2] As the use of woodYplastic composite (WPC) materials extends to include more structural applications, there is an increasing need ...

Wood-Filled Plastics: They Need the Right Additives for Strength ...Wood-plastic composites, or WPCs, are already a 1.3-billion-lb market and are growing at 20% annually. That's big enough to d increasing attention from additives suppliers to the particular needs of WPC applications in residential decks, railings, fencing, doors, window frames, outdoor spas, and gazebos. Work is also under way on siding and roofing. Suppliers are busy identifying optimum choices of existing additives and developing new ones to give WPCs better physical ...

Effect of wood flour type on flexural properties of wood-plastic ...Abstract: Effect of wood flour type on flexural properties of wood-polymer composites. The aim of the study was to determine an effect of the size of wood flour and filling ratio on the mechanical properties of wood- plastic composite. The composites were made from two types of wood flour and PVC. Mechanical properties. (flexural modulus and flexural strength) were determined. It was found out that mechanical properties of composite substantially depend on the type of wood flour and ...
