Nanomer and Cloisite are the popular commercial nanoclays (NC) available in the market. The mechanical properties of woodplastic composite (WPC) based on linear low density polyethylene with or without wood fiber are compared for different added nanoclays. In addition, the moisture uptakes at 23°C and 45% RH..
Jun 3, 2016 . There is an increasing need to find new alternatives for crude oil based materials such as plastics. WPCs are natural fibre composites with properties of both plastic and wood. These composites are used, for example, in buildings and in the manufacture of automobiles. It is estimated that the production of..
Jul 23, 2016 . This study investigated weathering performance of an HDPE wood plastic composite reinforced with extracted or delignified wood flour (WF). The wood flour was pre-extracted with three different solvents, toluene/ethanol (TE), acetone/water (AW), and hot water (HW), or sodium chlorite/acetic acid
oceans, particularly marine animals get affected by entanglement, direct ingestion of plastic waste. Humans are also . wood plastic composites (WPC) that exhibit synergistic material properties.Wood plastic composites involves usage of waste or virgin plastic and wood powder/fiber to produce a material that can be used..
