hybrid polymer system designed for sustainable wood-plastic composites dows amplify si pe 1000 silicone-polyethylene hybrid polymer system is said to enable stronger wood-plastic composites for decking and other applications.
dow midland, mich., u.s. has developed amplify si silicone enhanced polymer systems seps , a silicone-polyethylene hybrid technology that is said to improve product performance and help divert plastic waste from landfills. amplify si pe 1000, designed for wood-plastic composite decking, is the first of a series of products dow expects to launch under the new seps platform.
wood is a good example of a natural composite, combination of cellulose fiber and lignin. the cellulose fiber provides strength and the lignin is the 'glue' that bonds and stabilizes the fiber. bamboo is a very efficient wood composite structure. the components are cellulose and lignin, as in all other wood, however bamboo is hollow.
wood-plastic composite. wood plastic composites wpcs are composites manufactured from predominantly typically synthetic thermoplastic resins and wood flour filler, though thermoset resins and naturally derived resin systems may also be used. from: performance of bio-based building materials, 2017.
the formation of a durable interface in the plastic composites, causing failure in stress transfer from one phase to another. therefore, to enhance the affinity between these two compo-nents, the surface properties of one must be modified. the compatibility of wood and plastic can be improved by introducing a compatibilizer into the system.
at the same time, wood-plastic composites are resistant to termites and fungal decay. another advantage of the composites is their improved impact resistance and swelling induced by the uptake of moisture which is lower in our composites 0.93% following 24 hours immersion than in wood 2,6% for ponderosa pine .
a broad category of composite materials that include a honeycomb structure, a mass of hexagonal cells inspired by the shape of the honeycombs produced by bees in their nests. these are often used to produce flat, light materials with a high specific strength. metal, ceramic and plastic honeycomb composites are used in aircraft and sporting goods.
division 06 wood, plastics, and composites. plastics and composites are modern materials that continue to be modified and improved to enhance their current abilities. plastic is manufactured from polymers, a synthetic material, and can be moulded or extruded, uniformly, into virtually any shape.
recently, the usage of wood plastic composite wpc products has increased, mainly for exterior decking. the shape of fillers is one of the important factors deciding the mechanical and physical properties of wpcs.
152 pages report the wood plastic composite market is projected to reach usd 5.84 billion by 2021, at a cagr of 12.4% from 2016 to 2021. based on application, the wood-plastic composites market has been segmented into building and construction products, automotive components, industrial and consumer goods, and others.
the objectives this research were to 1 examine the processing and properties of wollastonite as a filler in wood plastic composites, 2 determine effect of wollastonite on mechanical and physical properties of wood-plastic composites wpcs , 3 to explore the possibility of the inclusion of wood ash in wpcs, 4 to determine the effects of wood ash on mechanical properties of wpcs, and 5 to
whats most remarkable about wood plastic composite is that it can be created entirely from recycled materials collected from c and d operations, wood product manufacturing facilities, and more. to top it off, used wpc can even be recycled to create brand new wpc, making wpc the ultimate recyclable commodity.
