The development of a wood- plastic composite project aims to ensure that used materials (plastics, polyethylene bags and paper) that could have gone into wastes are recycled for other important uses. Many attempts have been developed WPCs are not nearly as stiff as solid wood; however, they are stiffer than plastics. in addition, they do not require special fasteners or design changes in application as they perform like conventional wood. . According to a recent survey by UNEP
4 Sep 2017 Keywords: development; plastic; wood; Extruder; Machine; Waste;. Cost. introduction. wood plastic composite (WPC) are materials made from a combination of saw dust, thermoplastic resin and chemical additives. . WPCs are relatively new products as compared to the long history of natural lumber or traditional wood composites such as particleboard or fibreboard . wood in form of flour/particles/fibres/sawdust is combined with thermoplastic materials under
Highlights. •. The development of a design-value for wood–plastic composite (WPC) cladding is feasible and it can be derived from normative natural and accelerated weathering trials. wood–plastic composites (WPC) are an example of a novel highly sustainable building material. According to literature reviews on WPC technology, recent research mostly focuses on single aspects of compound properties rather than on multiple attributes and the extent of their mutual interaction.
the last 40 years resulting in increased applications and expanded market share. More specifically, WPCs are composites containing a wood component in particle form (wood particles/wood flour) and a polymer matrix. They are used in a variety. M.J. Schwarzkopf (&) 4 M.D. Burnard.

The use of wood-plastic composites is growing rapidly, as consumers experience their advantages over wood including low or no routine maintenance and no cracking, warping or splintering. Additive use is growing as wood-plastic composites penetrate new markets with more stringent performance requirements and as interest in long-term stability of composite products increases. While profile extrusion is used for the biggest portion of the market, in decking boards, injection
wood plastic composites (WPC) is the recycling of wood flour and plastic into new products like particle boards, floor tiles and other structural building applications. A..
The development of a design-value for wood–plastic composite (WPC) cladding is feasible and it can be derived from normative natural and accelerated weathering trials. •. Material degradation of WPC is primary caused by fungi, According to literature reviews on WPC technology, recent research mostly focuses on single aspects of compound properties rather than on multiple attributes and the extent of their mutual interaction. Despite a growing market, WPC investigations are

15 Oct 2016 The successful development of durable wood-plastic composite (WPC) cladding is a challenge for the industry. Due to the organic fibres in the compound it is though doubtable if WPC performs satisfyingly in a façade application which is expected to last 50 years. This paper provides insights from a study to find out how ageing of WPC cladding can be assessed by relevant norms and which material components best support durability aspects. Based on these, a
