reduce density wood plastic composites

Wood-Plastic Composite - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Wood–plastic composites (WPCs) have demonstrated technical and price requirements to become new mass-produced materials, similar to the use of thermoplastic recycled materials (Table 14.4). Injection moulding, thermoforming and possibly other technologies will gain in importance in Europe beyond the already well-developed decking sector.

Density Reduction and Electrical Conductivity Induction in Wood Plastic Composites | Scientific.Net

The primary objective of this research was the decrease in the density of wood particle-polypropylene composites using chemical blowing agents while retaining their mechanical properties. Different amounts of Azodicarbonamide (0%, 1% and 2% by weight) were mixed with four blends consisting of wood particles (15%, 25%, 35% and 45% by weight), Epolene (2% by weight) and polypropylene and ...

Microspheres: Fillers filled with possibilities | CompositesWorld

Unexpanded microspheres, which can be expanded in-situ, have been effectively used as foaming agents in wood plastic composites (WPCs). Foaming can remove from 5 percent to more than 30 percent of a WPC board’s weight, and the internal pressures generated during the foaming process reportedly result in a texture and appearance that is more like wood.
