study on mechanical properties of wood plastic composites

Physical and mechanical properties of wood-plastic composites ...Three types of inorganic fillers (talc, kaolin, and zinc-borate), which have been widely adopted in various applications, were used for manufacturing woodplastic composites (WPCs). The aim of this study is to understand the effects of filler shape, size, surface nature, and loading amount on the physical properties of WPCs. Kaolin filler showed the best performance in mechanical strength because of its staked plate shape, small particle size, and highly hydrophilic characteristics of its ...

Some of the Properties of Wood Plastic Composites - Society of ...12 Nov 2008 ... In this study some of the important properties of experimentally manufactured wood plastic ... Most of the physical and mechanical properties WPC depends mainly on the interaction developed ... interaction is incorporating a coupling agent as additive. In general, the additives help the compatibility between hydrophilic wood and hydrophobic plastic allowing the formation of single-phase composite. WPC also have problems when they are exposed to UV rays,.

Studies of physicomechanical properties of wood and wood plastic ...5 May 1992 ... Abstract. An attempt has been made to improve the quality of low grade wood through radiation induced wood plastic composite (WPC) formation in order to use these low grade woods as substitutes for high grade wood. Six kinds of local woods of Bangladesh (simul, korai, mango, jack fruit, teak, and garjon) were investigated. Both soft and hard wood varieties of these were selected. Ten vinyl monomers were used for the WPC. Improvement in the quality of wood ...

MECHANICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF WOOD-PLASTIC ...13 Sep 2015 ... The focus of this study was to characterize mechanical and physical properties of experimental composition prepared from nanoclays (Cloisite 20A), wood flour (WF) and polypropylene (PP). Nanoclays with different concentrations were used as reinforcing filler for wood plastic compositions (WPCs). Maleic anhydride grafted polypropylene (MAPP) was added as a coupling agent to increase the interaction between the components of wood-plastic composites.

Analysis of the mechanical properties of wood-plastic composites ...Analysis of the mechanical properties of wood-plastic composites based on agriculture Chili pepper waste. Delia Julieta ... In this study, a new composite material conception based on polypropylene (PP) and wood particles obtained from agricultural waste was investigated. Specifically, stalks and ... (2013), studied the properties of WPC reinforced by foams and found out that by incorporating the foam agent the properties of the mechanical composite decreased slightly. Ozdemir et al.

Study on the effects of wood flour geometry on physical and ...The present study is focused on the effects of the shape and size of Fagus orientalis wood flour on physical and mechanical properties of HDPE based wood plastic composites (WPC). Variables included two mesh sizes (20 and 60), as well as five different contents of ground shavings (0, 25, 50, 75, and 100%) mixed with sawdust; totally 10 treatments. HDPT content was 40% in all formulations. Panels were compression molded and physical and mechanical tests were carried out in ...
