Wood plastic composites market by type (PE, PVC & PP-based Composite) and application. The global market is anticipated to reach at $6584 million by 2023.
Abstract This chapter reviews and discusses the performance and environmental impacts of wood-plastic composites (WPCs) used in a variety of applications ranging from construction and automotive sectors to consumer goods. Performance is considered in terms of fitness for use, manufacturing methods, material compo-.
Wood plastic composite, a hybrid of wood and plastic, is a material commonly used to replace wood in various applications. The composition of wood plastic composite, as well as material characteristics, are explained here.
May 10, 2016 Wood–plastic composites (WPC) are on the increase in Europe (Carus et al., 2015). On the one hand, this will result in an increasing demand for plastics derived from fossil-based hydrocarbon sources, which implies significant environmental impacts. On the other hand, a competing demand also exists for
Wood plastic composites (WPC) are defined as composite materials that contain thermoplastics and wood in various forms. From decking and cladding to fencing and garden furniture, WPC additives provide these applications with a long life span and minimal maintenance, giving advantages over solely wood-based
