Reinforcement of Rigid PVC/Wood-Flour Composites with Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes. Omar Faruk, Laurent M. Matuana. Department of Forestry, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824. Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNT) were compounded with PVC by a melt blending process based on fusion.
The effects of wood-flour on combustion and thermal degradation behaviors of PVC in wood-flour/poly (vinyl chloride) composites (WF-PVC) were investigated by using cone calorimeter (CONE) and TGA. The results show that thermal degradation behavior of WF-PVC composites has obvious characteristics of that of PVC.

Dec 19, 2017 In this work, different strategies for improving the association between hydrophilic wood flour surfaces and poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) hydrophobic surfaces were tested. Three new coupling agents, based on living radical polymerisation (LRP), involving PVC were synthesised and tested in formulations with
Three different chemical stabilizers were introduced into neat PVC and a wood/PVC composite (containing 50 phr wood flour) to improve their thermal and structural stabilities. The changes in CIE yellowness index, polyene index, %wt loss, and decomposition temperature (Td) were monitored. The effects of type and
Oct 27, 2008 Abstract. Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) can absorb moisture in a humid environment owing to the hydrophilic nature of the wood, thereby making the products susceptible to microbial growth and loss of mechanical properties. In this study, rigid poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC)/wood-flour composites (core
Feb 9, 2005 Abstract. This study examined the effects of accelerated freeze–thaw actions on the durability of wood fiber-plastic composites. Rigid PVC formulations filled with various concentrations of wood flour (both pine and maple) were processed in a counterrotating twin-screw extruder and exposed to cyclic
Abstract. Relatioships between the density of foamed rigid PVC/wood-flour composites and the moisture content of the wood flour, the chemical foaming agent (CFA) content, the content of all-acrylic foam modifier, and the extruder die temperature were determined by using a response surface model based on a four-factor
Wood and plastic are best friends these days. Composites of wood flour and PP, PE, or PVC are the buzz in the building-products business. Dozens of firms are seeking to exploit these materials for manufacturing tough, lightweight window profiles, plastic lumber, and interior auto panels. "Per-pound cost is extremely low,
