wood-plastic composites thermoplastic/wood composites are typically described as materials that combine the properties of thermoplastics and wood. composites made with wood and polymer matrix are used for the purpose of obtaining materials with some characteristics of these two resources, such as the appearance of wood and the performance of plastic in a humid area.
wood plastic composite perhaps most recognizable as decking materials, wood-plastic composites in fact display an incredibly wide range of potential applications. by adjusting the species, size and concentration of wood particles in the formulation, different properties can be achieved. wood-plastic composites can even be foamed to make a strong lightweight material.
wood composites sciencedirect abstract. the adhesives used in the manufacture of wood composites have arguably the most influence on the composites properties. the adhesives influence all aspects of the composites, from their mechanical properties and their ability to perform in wet conditions to their effects on the environment both localised and the wider environment .
