the impact of recycled materials on the properties of ... - Doria29 Sep 2017 ... The main aim of this thesis was to study how different recycled materials 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 materials from construction and demolition industry and from municipalities were used as the matrix. Some composites manufactured from different recycled materials ...

(source: WikipediA) Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) (also fibre-reinforced polymer) is a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres. The fibres are usually glass, carbon, aramid, or basalt. The polymer is usually an epoxy, vinylester or polyester thermosetting plastic; phenol formaldehyde resins are still in use. FRPs are commonly used in the ...

Furthermore, natural fibers such as hemp, sisal, kenaf and flax, agricultural residual material such as wheat st and rice husks and even paper residues can be used in the production of wpc. Production residues from the manufacture of wpc as well as wpc at the end of its useful life can be recycled again, for which the products are ...

Wood-plastic composite - Wikipediawpcs may be produced from either virgin or recycled thermoplastics including HDPE, LDPE, PVC, PP, ABS, PS, and PLA. Polyethylene based wpcs are by far the most common. Additives such as colorants, coupling agents, UV stabilizers, blowing agents, foaming agents, and lubricants help tailor the end product to the target area of application. Extruded wpcs are formed into both solid and hollow profiles. A large variety of injection molded parts are also produced, from automotive ...

Stoffliches WPC-Recycling - Fraunhofer WKIStoffliches recycling von Wood-Polymer Composites. Grundsätzlich werden wpc als recyclingfähige Produkte vermarktet. Eine konkrete abfallrechtliche Zuordnung von wpc existiert bisher jedoch nicht. Die Wertstoffhöfe werden mit steigenden Mengen an wpc konfrontiert, die nicht zugeordnet werden können. In diesem Forschungsprojekt soll der Frage nachgegangen werden, ob eine erneute stoffliche Nutzung (end-of-life-recycling) von wpc technisch umsetzbar ist.

Life Cycle Assessment of Wood-Plastic Composites (WPC)It is hypothesized that there is a significant difference in the environmental performance of wpc if it is produced from virgin or recycled materials. A comparative LCA will be conducted to prove this hypothesis. Furthermore and as a major concern of this project, the recycling potential and alternatives to current end-of-life route (combustion) of wpc will be investigated and analyzed with the LCA methodology. It is also crucial to provide solution approaches for an environmentally sound ...

Recycling material from WPC - Fraunhofer WKIIn principle, wpc are marketed as recyclable products. However, a specific waste legislation classification for wpc does not currently exist. The recycling depots are faced with increasing quantities of wpc which cannot be allocated to a particular area. Internal cycling investigations have been carried out for wpc and natural fibre-reinforced plastics. In this research project, the question will be asked as to whether a renewed material usage (end-of-life recycling) is technically ...
