Processing WPCs at too high of temperatures increases the risk of shearing, or burning and discoloration resulting from pushing a material that s too hot through too small of a gate, during injection molding The ratio of wood to plastic in the composite will ultimately determine the melt flow index (MFI) of the WPC, with larger

Jan , WPC Wood Plastic Composite production video using the state of the art Plugamp Play material blending and drying process This process gives the ability to ut

The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of wood plastic composite extrusion Covered in this work is a brief introduction to wood plastic composites, the equipment and processing unit operations required to manufacture wood plastic composites, and the basic material properties of wood plastic composites.

Despite this reality, some wood plastic composite suppliers seem to ignore the importance of small, rounded pellets during the production phase They re simply unwilling to invest in the machinery necessary to achieve uniformity or to go through the time consuming drying procedures required by more precise pellet cutting

wood) indicate the potential for these renewable materials to eventually enter the WPC market (Mukherjee and Kao ) However, these composites still have significant environmental impact due to processing and production, and steps to reduce the energy demands and water use should be taken (Qiang et al ).

Manufacture WPC profiles, which are produced in a single or two stage extrusion process, are the most commonly manufactured form of WPC (figure ) Single stage Extrusion This is a so called direct extrusion process The mixing of the wood fibers with the plastic granules (compounding) and the extrusion of the profile

Wood plastic composites (WPCs) are roughly mixtures of thermoplastic polymers and small wood particles The wood and thermoplastics are usually process In addition, moisture in wood can create voids in the final product and thus adversely affect mechanical properties Moisture content levels of to percent (

Jun , Wood plastic composites (WPCs) are a form of composite combining wood based elements with polymers The processes for manufacturing WPCs include extrusion, injection molding, and compression molding

The performance of the machine was investigated in terms of the throughput and efficiency on the mixing ratio of the composites It was observed that the extruder performed optimally when used to process the wood plastic composite of ratio SD PET It takes the melting chamber minutes to fully melt the plastic and
