Coperion's compounding plants for WPC wood plastics composites have proven themselves successfully in the market for many years. As a long-standing partner to the wood fiber industry, Coperion is well-known for its extensive process and system know-how with which every process step of the compounding plants is

method at various wood-plastic ratio which typically ranges between Wood plastic composites (WPC) is the recycling of wood flour and plastic into new products like particle boards, Citation: Akinfiresoye WA, Olukunle OJ, Akintade AA (2017) Development of a Wood Plastic Composite Extruder.

The first step in wood-plastic composite fabrication, called compounding, blends organic plant fibers with an inorganic thermoplastic. The percent of wood fiber used in this processing step is very important as it directly affects the tensile strength and Young's

Renewable composites 4 User perceptions 4 Wood-plastic composites mance, a homeowner may choose to use WPC decking instead of pressure-treated plastic product. Wood used in WPCs often comes from side streams such as sawdust produced while manufacturing lumber or recovered wood products, and is.

Wood-plastic composites are widely used in decking (Photo: Chemtura). In North America, the WPC market will continue to experience double digit growth 2003 to 2010, says Principia. The decking market was the original driver for WPC growth, and continues to account for a nearly 65% share of the WPC market. WPC

Wood plastic composites (WPC) are defined as composite materials that contain thermoplastics and wood in various forms. From decking and cladding to Lubricants Process Aids. Our range of lubricants for wood plastics composites can be incorporated directly during the extrusion process to give the following benefits:.

WPC is composed mainly from a plastic matrix reinforced with wood and other additives sometimes are added using the appropriate processing procedures. Several ingredients of WPC are found in literature. Najafi, et al. 2007, mentioned that WPC is a composite composed from a natural fiber filler.
