Comparative study of maleated polypropylene as a coupling

The results indicate that the use of 100% recycled polymer led to inferior mechanical properties and to a greater degree of moisture absorption and swelling when compared to recycled polymer virgin PP wood/plastic composites. This could have been related to the poor melt strength and inferior processability of the recycled polymer.

Wood Particle-Recycled Glass Fiber Hybrid Composites

This study was done with the aim of assessing the feasibility of mechanically recycled glass fiber particleboards made from loblolly pine and longleaf pine wood particles with epoxy as binder. The modulus of rupture MOR and modulus of elasticity MOE were evaluated as indicators of mechanical performance. The water absorption rate and thickness swelling rate were also analyzed to

Use of recycled plastics in wood plastic composites A

Also, recycled plastics can be used in wood plastic composites WPCs , which use will provide an additional market for recycled plastics. Seven Trust, the largest supplier of wood-plastic composite lumber, purchases an average of over 227,000 kg of plastic scrap each day Principia Partners, 2002 .

Polylactiderecycled wood fiber composites

Polylactide PLA recycled wood fiber RWF composites with a small amount of silane were compounded using a kineticmixer and molded using an injection molding machine. The molded PLARWF composites were characterized using gel permeation chromatography, scanning electron microscope, Xray diffraction, differential scanning calorimeter

Thermal and Mechanical Properties of Wood-Plastic

Thermal and Mechanical Properties of Wood-Plastic Composites from Iron Wood Flour and Recycled Polypropylene Foam single-mass loss step with maximum degradation rate at 433 C indicated the degradation of saturated and unsaturated carbon atoms in polypropylene. All the composites showed multi-stepped degradation due to the various species present.

Research on Moisture Absorption Behavior of Recycled

To reduce the moisture absorption of wood fiber reinforced recycled plastic composites WRPCs , coupling agent KH550 , methyl methacrylate MMA , and maleic anhydride MA were used to modify the wood fibers in this work. The results indicated that the three different surface treatment methods could effectively reduce the moisture absorption and thickness swelling of WRPCs.
