Abstract. Wood plastic composites (WPC) are prepared with low density wood simul under Co-60 gamma radiation using acrylamide (AM), butyl methacrylate (BMA), and styrene (ST) as the bulk monomers at different compositions with methanol used as swelling agent. The effect of additives, e.g.,
WPC additives are chemical components that facilitate wood-plastic composite processing (WPC extrusion) as well as / or impart WPC with improved properties. They come in form of powder, granules and, less often, liquids. Among the most common ones are coupling agents, compatibilizers, lubricants, UV-stabilizers,
Flat-pressed wood plastic composites from sawdust and recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET): physical and mechanical properties. Khandkar- Siddikur Rahman Additives can also be added to improve the quality of the composites by eliminating the off-putting properties. However, the utilization of
Wood plastic composites ( WPC) are prepared with low density wood simul under co-60 gamma radiation using acrylamide (AM), butyl methacrylate (BMA), and styrene (ST) as the bulk monomers at different compositions with methanol used as swelling agent.

impacts of wood-plastic composites (WPCs) used in a variety of applications ranging from construction and Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are a product class that has been developing over the last 40 years up a relatively small proportion of the total composite are additives which are added to aid in processing and
additive technology and its portfolio of additive products for the enhancement of wood-fiber composites. PRIEX® coupling agents feature a maleic anhydride (MAH) group grafted onto a backbone of polyethylene or polypropylene. They enhance the strength of wood-plastic composites by coupling the PP matrix to the wood
As one can see, wood plastic composite (shortened as WPC) is quite relevant example of composite material. It consists of a blend of wood fibers and matrix polymer. Chemical additives, as a third composition component, are practically "invisible" (except mineral fillers and pigments, if added) in the composite structure.
Maleated polyolefins (MAPE) have been used industrially for decades in wood plastic composite (WPC) production because they are inexpensive and effective crosslinking agents. Dicumyl peroxide (DCP) is another chemical used widely as an initiator and crosslinking agent for natural fibers in
The current North American Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) market is estimated at around €888 million (US$1.1 billion) for building and construction, with an annual growth rate of approximately 16% by 2018. The economic production of high-quality WPC products faces some challenges from application-dependent
