Wood polymer composites and their contribution to cascading ..1 Jan 2016 . Wood polymer composites (WPCs) are a group of hybrid materials mainly consisting of renewable resources. They help to realise a more responsible and efficient method of resource utilisation as they contain wood waste materials and by-products and like this are in line with the principle of cascading.
Wood-Polymer Materials - Advances in Chemistry (ACS Publications).22 Jul 2009 . This chapter is concerned primarily with wood—polymer composites using vinyl monomers. Generally, wood-polymers imply bulk polymerization of a vinyl-type monomer in the void spaces of solid wood. This bulk polymerization takes place in the vessels, capillaries, ray cells, etc., but not in the cell wall or.
Wood Polymer Composites (WPC) combine polymers with wood fibres.The natural wood fibres are chemically bound within the formulation to enhance durability making it an ideal material for internal and external applications.
