Wood polypropylene composites (WPC) of different compositions (30, 40, and 50%) have been prepared using maleic anhydridepolypropylene copolymer of different percentage (5 and 10% relative to their wood fiber content). Tensile, flexural, fracture toughness, and impact test of the prepared WPC were carried out
The maleated elastomers are, therefore, expected to form a flexible interphase around the wood particles giving the composites better impact strength. MAPP further enhanced adhesion between WF and impact-modified PP systems. EPDM and EPDM-MA rubber domains were homogeneously dispersed in the PP matix the
Scanning electron micrographs showed that the composite paper mill sludge improved the adhesion and dispersion of the filler (paper mill sludge/fiber paper instead of wheat) in the matrix.

composite modified by physical blending with an EPDM rubber to improve impact toughness. Wood-fiber thermoplastic composites were prepared with a modified .. PP composites (16). The results have shown that the balance of impact toughness/rigidity of PP presented by Izod notched impact strength/flexural modulus
Abstract. Different types of impact test methods have been used in recent years to measure the impact resistance of natural fibre composites (NFCs). After reviewing the literature, the impact resistance of flax, hemp, sisal, wood and jute fibre composites that were measured using different test methods have been compared..
Figure 7 exhibits the curves of Izod impact strength function of wood incorporated. It is important to note that the impact test machine used in this study did not provide enough energy to break the neat PP because of the high flexibility of the PP matrix. By contrast, all of the composites with and without MAPP broke completely
Impact response of plywood laminate composites with imbedded glass and flax fibre fabrics utilising different adhesives were both . laminate composites were subjected to drop-weight tests with initial energy of 150J and striker with diameter. 20 mm in order to determine . the strength properties of wood.

Aug 7, 2013 . The effect of reinforcing filler loading on the impact strength of a wood plastic composite was investigated. The results of the notched impact test according to ASTM D256 confirmed that increasing the reinforcing filler loading reduces the flexural strength, tensile strength, impact strength, and elongation at..
incorporating wood flour into the plastic matrix. In general, wood flour improves the heat deflection of unfilled polymer matrix, which increases with increasing wood flour loading. It should be pointed out that a recent study that assessed the effect of wood flour content on the impact strength of PLA/wood-flour composites
and flexural strength of the PP powder. The modulus also increased with increasing the fiber content, because poplar fibers are believed to be more rigid than polymer. However the addition of wood fibers resulted in a decrease in elongation and impact pro- perties of the composites. The FTIR spectroscopy showed that the..
Dec 14, 2017 . that treatment of WF with glutaraldehyde and 1,3-dimethylol-4,5-dihydroxyethyleneurea enhanced the interfacial compatibility and tensile strength of the composites . Plastic matrix modification is another potential strategy to improve the mechanical properties of woodpolypropylene composites [21,22],..
The addition of the carbon black pigment had a positive effect on the dimensional stability of the composites in a water absorption test. Only the combination of the carbon black pigment and wollastonite resulted in a composite which was capable to retain its Charpy impact strength both after one year of outdoor weathering..
From the results it is observed that wood chips-PP composites showed better tensile and flexural properties comparative with the other wood fibre-PP composites with the addition of 5%MAH-PP, which is around 65% and 50% for tensile strength and flexural strength respectively. Hard wood fibre-PP composites showed..

The addition of the Liquid Wood resulted in a great improvement in terms of both the flexural modulus and strength but, on the other hand, a reduction of the impact strength was observed. For one blend composition, the composites reinforced with hemp fibers were also studied
