applications of wood plastic composite

Standard-compliant development of a design value for woodplastic ...woodplastic composites (WPC) are an example of a novel highly sustainable building material. They consist of wood fibers embedded in a petrochemical plastics matrix. Main applications are decking and cladding. There is an emerging body of literature concerning the use of bio-fiber reinforced plastics instead of pure petrochemical polymers, which relieves the pressure on scarce resources such as fossil fuels. However, their use in green façades is still in its infancy because their ...

Wood Plastic Composite - Grand View Research, Inc.wood plastic composite market size was valued at USD 4.06 Billion in 2015. Rising application scope in decking and fencing applications is expected to drive demand for the product in the construction industry. Growing demand for wood plastic composite as a low cost and environment-friendly substitute to plastic and steel components in construction applications is expected to drive the market growth. Better recyclability, thermal stability, and stiffness offered by the wood plastic ...

Modifiers for Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) - BYK Additives ...wood plastic composites (WPC) belong to a group of natural fiber-reinforced compounds in which wood fibers (or wood flour) are used as reinforcing fillers in amounts generally ranging from. 50 to 80 %. A number of other natural fibers can be used for comparable applications, for example, hemp, flax,

Adhesion to wood-plastic composites - HubSpotfurniture. wood-plastic composites are thought to be more environmentally friendly and require less maintenance than the alternatives of solid wood treated with preservatives. In some applications, the ability to coat or bond the WPC is needed. For example, overlaying the WPC panels with veneer sheets improves their appearance and properties for furniture manufacturing. Bonding of WPCs is required to fabricate laminated beams for structural applications. Adhesion is extremely.
