12–3 Chapter 12 Mechanical Properties of Wood-Based Composite Materials ASTM D 7031 for wood–plastic composites, and ASTM D 7341 for glulam products.
Despite the many positive properties of wood-plastic-composite, there are also negative characteristics that hinder the use of WPC in many product areas, such as automotive interiors in which the surface texture requirements are high.
The term "wood-plastic composites" WPC widely refers to any number of composites that contains wood (of any form) and either thermoset-or thermoplastic-polymers.
Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) ... mechanical properties of a wood ... strength of the composite material are also greatly improved (figure 3). ...
Wood–plastic composite (WPC) is an environmentally progress way of combining recycled plastics and wood flour. The composite typically consists of four major elements: wood flour, thermoplastic plastics, coupling agent, and lubricant.

A wood–plastic composite (WPC) is a common term referring to wood-based elements such as lumber, veneer, fibers, or particles that are combined with polymers to create a composite material.
Wood plastic composites (WPCs) are relatively new generation of composite materials and also the most promising sector in the field of both composite and plastic industries. In 1970s, the modern concept of WPC was developed
Wood-plastic composites (WPC) are widely used in USA, the most common type of such panels are produced by mixing wood flour and plastics to produce a material that can be processed similar to 100% plastic based products (Ballerini 2004, Charrier 1999,
The growing demand for new construction materials with improved mechanical properties and other working characteristics, which are capable to substitute traditional materials, metal and wood, is the key for the expansion of the wood plastic composite (WPC) market.
Mechanical, thermal, and morphological properties of injection molded wood-plastic composites (WPCs) prepared from poplar wood flour (50 wt%), thermoplastics (high density polyethlyne or polypropylene) with coupling agent (3 wt%), and hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) (2, 4, or 6 wt%) nanopowder were investigated.
Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is a group of materials that have been WPC products represent the new generation, having good mechanical properties, high Get-Prices ?[PDF]?
