Use of Wood Flour as Filler in Polypropylene: Studies on

Mechanical properties of polypropylene (PP) filled with wood flour was studied. Increase in tensile strength, with fiber concentration, was found in PP filled with PMPPIC pretreated wood flour. Elastic modulus was unaffected by fiber treatment. Izod-impact strength decreased with increased filler level in the composite. 【Get Price】

Wood Flour/Polypropylene Composites: Influence of Maleated

The mechanical properties of wood flour/polypropylene composites may be improved by using coupling agents to enhance the bonding between filler and matrix. We used a two-level, full-factorial experiment to examine the effectiveness of a commercially available additive, Epolene E-43, on strength (tensile, flexural, and 【Get Price】

Effects of wood fiber characteristics on mechanical properties of

Commercial wood flour, the most common wood-derived filler for thermoplastics, is produced in a mixture of particle sizes and generally has a lower aspect ratio than wood and other natural fibers. To understand how wood flour and fiber characteristics influence the mechanical properties of polypropylene composites, we 【Get Price】

Polypropylene-based wood-plastic composites: Effect of using a

In this work, post-consumer polypropylene and wood flour from Pinus elliottii were used to produce wood plastic composites. The effect of polypropylene grafted with itaconic acid used as a coupling agent on mechanical properties, thermal stability and morphology of the composites was investigated and compared with the 【Get Price】

Influence of moisture absorption on mechanical properties of wood

Description. Wood-plastic composites are being examined for a greater number of structural-type applications that may be exposed to different environments, some of them adverse. This paper discusses the influence of moisture absorption on the mechanical proper-ties of wood flour-polypropylene composites. Composites 【Get Price】
