Wood-Plastic Composites
by Anatole A. Klyosov

Wood-Plastic Composites presents an overview of the main principles underlying the composition of wood-plastic composite (WPC) materials and their performance in the real world.

Features:

  • Describes compositions of WPC materials, including thermoplastics, cellulose fiber, minerals, additives, and their properties
  • Covers mechanical properties, microbial resistance, water absorption, flammability, slip resistance, thermal expansion-contraction, sensitivity to oxidation and solar radiation, and rheological properties of hot melts of WPC
  • Covers subjects that determine esthetics, properties, performance, and durability of wood-plastic composite products
  • Includes comparisons of different ASTM methods and procedures that apply to specific properties
