The Advantages of Using a Wood Component In Thermoplastic Composites

Dr.kaushal k vyas, Vishal Sharma


The manufacture of gadgets in wooden-plastic composites that's a material already available in lots of developed countries appears nearly unknown in Cameroon for the reason that production manufacturing unit of items in wood-plastic composites does not exist up until here. interested in the observe of homes of wooden-plastic composites thru connection of easy plastic and timber, we've got oriented our paper inside the elaboration, attention and bodily characterization of timber-plastic composites with Padou and polypropylene. An injection press available at NYANGONO PLASTIC manufacturing facility (Yaounde-Cameroon) was used to manufacture our wood- plastic composites. the following combos had been used: 1/three Padou flour and a couple of/three plastic; 1/3 Padou flour and 3/four plastic; 1/4 Padou flour and four/5 plastic. We discovered that the composite fabricated from 1/4 Padou flour and 4/5 plastic reaches first the hygroscopic saturation factor, flowed with the aid of the one containing 1/4 of wood and three/four of plastic and ultimately that containing 1/three of wood and 2/3 of plastic. The moisture content of the entire timber-plastic composite made became very low even in soaked surroundings allowing us to conclude that these composites will be likely not attacked with the aid of fungus and bugs
