Composites: A Vision for the Future - tifacThe use of natural fibres such as jute, sisal, banana, hemp, ramie, coir etc. as reinforcements in plastics is increasing tremendously. wood flour and other fibres are primarily used as fillers in thermoplastic decking, building materials, furniture & automotive components. Long agricultural fibres such as flax, kenaf, bast, hemp & jute are used as structural reinforcements in thermoplastic/thermoset composites as a replacement of glass fibre. Natural fibre composites can easily be recycled ...

Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) - BoraxWPCs offer a wide range of advantages over alternatives such as pressure-treated lumber and naturally durable cedar or redwood: weather resistance, long service life and lower maintenance, to name a few. These products also play a role in developing a more sustainable future: many WPCs use recycled plastic and wood as materials in the manufacturing process. Tests of WPCs in harsh outdoor exposures have unveiled one potential downside to this miracle material: wood ...
