While wood-plastic composites (WPCs) broke onto the scene in the 1990s as materials primarily extruded into boards for decking and fencing, optimization of these materials for injection molding since then has greatly diversified their potential applications as durable and sustainable materials. Environmental friendliness is

Compression molding is a high-volume, high-pressure method suitable for molding complex, high-strength fiberglass reinforcements. Advanced composite thermoplastics can also be compression molded with unidirectional tapes, woven fabrics, randomly oriented fiber mat or chopped strand. The advantage of compression

Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is a composite material made from sawdust and plastic as polymer bonding, that used in a variety of structural and nonYstructural compression molded composites based on a combination recycled PET and Sengon chips [8], Susanti studied about compression molded composites based

Traditionally, wood-plastic composites were fabricated using compression molding. The disadvantage of using this process in the manufacture of WPCs is that any part created takes a general form. This means that additional manufacturing processes, which tend to be wasteful and

technology. Two methods for the manufacturing of wood plastic composites were suggested: injection molding method and extrusion and compression molding method. (Klyosov, 2007). Then, a local market survey was conducted to check the availability of machines needed for these two technologies.

2013 ) used injection. molding to manufacture wood fl our and PLA composites, while Hu et al. ( 2012 ). used compression molding to manufacture jute and PLA composites. Other study. reported use of thermoforming (Chang et al. 2009 ) and RTM (Faruk et al. 2012 ). Higher demand for plastic composites

Keywords: Bamboo plastic composite, Molding technology, Future focuses. Abstract. Bamboo plastic Compression molding (Also known as hot-press molding) is a molding method by which material is shaped and . rarely reported about FMD in the application of BPC, but wood plastic composite has been molded. 272

composites formed by mixing compression molding had good mechanical properties, water absorption, and moisture absorption performance. Wood plastic composites (WPCs) are made with agricultural and forestry waste, including waste wood flour, wood shavings, saw dust, rice husks, crushed rice straw, peanut shells
