MECHANICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF WOOD-PLASTIC ...13 Sep 2015 ... Maleic anhydride grafted polypropylene (MAPP) was added as a coupling agent to increase the interaction between the components of wood-plastic composites. Nanoclay based wood-plastic composites were made by extrusion process and then injection molding. Mechanical and physical properties of the as-prepared composites were evaluated. The results of strength measurements showed that the flexural modulus of the composite was increased by 56.33 % with ...

characteristics of wood plastic composites based on ... - DiVA portalA new building material known as wood-plastic composites (WPCs) has emerged. WPCs are a combination of a thermoplastic matrix and a wood component, the former is usually recycled polyethylene or polypropylene, and the latter a wood processing residual, e.g. sawdust and wood shavings. The objective of this thesis was to gain more insight about characteristics of WPCs containing a modified wood component. The hypothesis was that a modified wood component in WPCs ...

Improving the properties of woodplastic composite through addition ...woodplastic composites (WPCs) present a class of materials originally developed to decrease the dependency on the mineral oil-based plastics. However, additives and coupling agents incorporated in these composites are usually derived via synthetic routes. The effect of hardwood distillate (HWD) on the properties of WPC was determined by adding various amounts (18 wt%) of distillate to a commercial WPC consisting of thermally treated saw dust (Scots pine) in a ...

Physical and mechanical properties of woodplastic composites ...Hybrid filler-reinforced composites are considered as high performance materials, but limited number of studies on hybridizations of wood fibers and mineral fillers were reported. Three types of inorganic fillers (talc, kaolin, and zinc-borate), which have been widely adopted in various applications, were used for manufacturing woodplastic composites (WPCs). The aim of this study is to understand the effects of filler shape, size, surface nature, and loading amount on the physical ...

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 Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) ...

Characteristics of woodfiber plastic composites made of recycled ...This study investigates the feasibility of using recycled high density polyethylene (rHDPE), polypropylene (rPP) and old newspaper (rONP) fiber to manufacture experimental composite panels. The panels were made through air-forming and hot press. The effects of the fiber and coupling agent concentration on tensile, flexural, internal bond properties and water absorption and thickness swelling of woodfiber plastic composites were studied. The use of maleated polypropylene as ...

Physical and mechanical properties of woodplastic composites ...physical properties of WPCs. Kaolin filler showed the best performance in mechanical strength because of its staked plate shape, small particle size, and highly hydrophilic characteristics of its surface. In water absorption, talc filler showed a lower value than the kaolin case due to the structural difference. Keywords. woodplastic composites, inorganic fillers, hybrid composites, physical properties. Introduction. Studies of polymer composites mixing with organic or inorganic fillers have ...

Some of the properties of woodplastic composites - ScienceDirectIn this study some of the important properties of experimentally manufactured woodplastic composites (WPC) were determined. Specimen having 60% and 80% particle and fiber of radiata pine (Pinus radiata ) were mixed with polypropylene (plastic) and four different additives, namely Structor TR 016 which is coupling agent, CIBA anti-microbial agent (IRGAGUARD F3510) as fungicide, CIBA UV filter coating (TINUVIN 123S), CIBA blue pigment (Irgalite), and their combinations.

Characteristics of wood-plastic composites reinforced with organo ...Nanomer and Cloisite are the popular commercial nanoclays (NC) available in the market. The mechanical properties of woodplastic composite (WPC) based on linear low density polyethylene with or without wood fiber are compared for different added nanoclays. In addition, the moisture uptakes at 23<sup>°</sup>C and 45% RH and water uptake/loss after immersion in water are evaluated. I.34TCN type nanoclay as well as Cloisite Na+ lead to composites with superior mechanical properties&nbsp;...

Effects of fiber characteristics on the physical and mechanical ...We investigated the effects of fiber variability, size, and content on selected mechanical and physical properties of wood plastic composites. HDPE and fibers were compounded into pellets by twin-screw extrusion and test specimens were prepared by injection molding. All tested properties vary significantly with fiber origin. Higher fiber size produces higher strength and elasticity but lower energy to break and elongation. The effect of fiber size on water uptake is minimal. Increasing&nbsp;...
