Abstract. In this study some of the important properties of experimentally manufactured wood– plastic composites (WPC) were determined. Specimen having
Biobased materials made from renewable resources, such as wood, play an important role in the sustainable development of society. One main challenge of
Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are composite materials made of wood fiber/wood flour and . The types of plastic normally used in WPC formulations have higher fire hazard properties than wood alone, as plastic has a higher chemical heat
Nanoclay based wood-plastic composites were made by extrusion process and then injection molding. Mechanical and physical properties of the as-prepared
Wood and bone are examples of natural composites. single structural material can be found that has all of the desired characteristics for a given application.
