Decking and automotive are the most important application sectors for WPC, followed by siding and fencing. Only the automotive sector is relevant for Natural Fibre Composites (NFC) today. The share of WPC and NFC in the total composite market – including glass, carbon, wood and Natural Fibre Composites – is already.

the Characteristics of Wood-Plastic Composites. 24. Dissertations in Forestry and Natural Sciences No 222 other major technologies used in WPC production. (Godavarti. 2005). 2.1 MATERIALS. The properties of WPCs are mainly determined by the characteristics of their two main constituents.
The main aim of this thesis was to study how different recycledmaterials affect the properties and profitability of wood-plastic composites. Materials from construction and demolition industry and mining and packaging industry were used as fillers or as strengthening fibers. In another case, plastic
Weathering of WPC resulted in a surface lightening and a decrease in wood index (wood/HDPE) and flexural strength. WPCs that were reinforced with delignified wood flour showed higher ΔL and ΔE values, together with lower MOE and MOR retention ratios upon weathering when compared to those
Based on the author's experience from the WPC industry, manufacturers are faced a lack of information about how to assess this long-term material degradation for their product. Therefore, the following questions are of paramount interest: (1) Which are the relevant norms to take into account when

Wood plastic composites (WPC) are highly filled thermoplastics; they are usually binary systems consisting of wood WPC are a very young segment of the polymer industry with a great potential. Not only due to its regarding density, cost, mechanical properties and biodegradability compared to other fibres. However, the

size characteristics of the wood particles being used (Stark and Rowlands 2003). 2.2.1 Wood Species. The wood species used in WPCs is typically determined by geographical location, availability, and price. The wood species used affects important aspects of WPC production like chemical compatibility and mechanical
The PVC recyclate modification with wood flour, of higher density than the polymer matrix, causes the decrease of WPC composite density. The addition of plasticizer has similar effect on. PVC properties. The largest differences in density between PVC and WPC were observed for samples with 2.8% ESO, while the smallest
