wood plastic composite weight

Physical and Mechanical Properties of WPC Board from Sengon ...for Evaluating Mechanical and Physical Properties of wood plastic composite Products). For the moisture content measurement, the specimens dimension was 2 by 2 inch in size, the weight of each specimen was measured before and after soaNed in distilled water at room temperature for 24 hours. The moisture content is the percentage difference of the specimens weight before and after drying. As shown in Fig. 1, WPC has very small moisture content approximately in the value of ...

Moisture and Fungal Durability of Wood-Plastic Composites Made ...were conditioned by water soaking either 2 weeks at 22 C or 5 days at 70 C. weight and moisture content of the WPCs were monitored. Results showed that the acetylation decreased the moisture sorption of the WPCs and showed no mass losses due to decay. The WPC with an isothiazolone-based solution did not show any mass losses due to fungal decay. Keywords: wood-plastic composites, fungal durability, moisture resistance, acetylation, isothiazolone. 1. INTRODUCTION.

Breaking Load Analysis of Wood Plastic Composite ... - IOSR JournalsAutomobile industries are also using WPC materials to achieve lesser weight, better surface finishing and lesser cost. As a rule-of-thumb is that 5% less weight means average fuel savings of 3%, according to industry association plastics Europe.wood is one of many biofibres currently being considered for the replacement of mineral fillers and glass fibers in thermoplastic resins. The Michigan,. US, company RheoTech has recently introduced two other fibers, agave and coconut, into ...

Wood Plastic Composites PDF - Forestry CommissionMore thermally stable than plastic. Lower stiffness than wood. Dimensional stability. Thermal expansion. Low water absorption. Rot free? Resistant to rot (if they contain a biocide)*. Low maintenance? Engineered profiles. Recyclability? Lower variability than wood. Aesthetics. Do not warp and splinter. Creep under load. Tailored products. Heavy - density 1000kg/m3. Light weight foamed WPC. * the promotion of WPC as rot free and not requiring wood preservatives was challenged as ...

Biological Durability of Injection Moulded Wood Plastic Composite ...25 Nov 2010 ... The steadily growth of wood plastic composite (WPC) in exterior applications resulted a need to understand their durability. In Malaysia, the durability of WPC is not only aff

Wood-Plastics Composites Done Right : Plastics Technology26 Apr 2012 ... Poorly distributed wood fibers, called wood spots, are a common quality problem when the wood contains excessive fines or when the extruder is too worn to achieve good mixing. Ground wood fiber equilibrates at 8% to 12% moisture by weight, depending on the humidity. Residual water in the extrudate leaving the extrusion die causes swelling of the WPC profile, so it is necessary to remove essentially all of the water in the extrudate before it leaves the die and is ...

Field and Laboratory Decay Evaluations of wood-plastic CompositesThe shortest initiation time and the most aggressive environment for decay of WPC samples were found at the sunny site in Hilo. Laboratory soil block culture testing showed weight loss and density decrease of experimental WPCs to depend on conditioning. Correlations between laboratory test results and WPC performance in the field are described. Experience within industry and academia related to decay of woodplastic composite (WPC) materials subject to laboratory testing and ...
