Polypropylene/wood flour composites: treatments and properties - ScienceDirect

1. IntroductionThere are environmental and economical advantages to producing wood flour (WF) thermoplastic composites. Although the use of wood-based fillers is not as popular as the use of mineral or inorganic fillers, wood-derived fillers have several advantages ...

Properties of PP/wood flour/organomodified montmorillonite nanocomposites | SpringerLink

In this research, composites based on polypropylene (PP), beech wood flour, and organomodified montmorillonite (OMMT) were prepared and characterized for their properties. The blend nanocomposites were prepared by melt mixing of PP/WF at 50% weight ratios with various amounts of OMMT (0, 3, and 6

Accelerated weathering of polypropylene/wood flour composites - ScienceDirect

Wood–plastic composites (WPCs) have received increasing attention during the last decades, because of many advantages related to their use. Some of their main applications are represented by outdoor furnishing and decking; therefore, it is important to assess ...

Preparation and characterization of polypropylene/wood flour/nanoclay composites | SpringerLink

In this study, the effects of coupling agent and nanoclay loading on the mechanical properties and water absorption of composites are investigated. Composites based on polypropylene (PP), wood flour, nanoclay, and maleated polypropylene (MAPP) were made by melt compounding and then injection molding
