Composites of recycled oxo-biodegradable foils filled with wood flour

Polimery 2010, No 10, 740


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2010.740

Summary

Wood-polymer composites (WPC) have been derived on the basis of oxo-biodegradable polyethylene (PE-HD) from recycling containing 1 % d2w and wood flour with stable parameters up to the amount of 32 wt. %. The properties of the obtained composites were characterized according to EU standard procedures regarding polymer-wood composites. The density, moisture content, combustion heat, flammability (Table 2, Figs. 3, 5—7), resistance to accelerated ageing (Table 1, Fig. 4) and mechanical properties were determined. The analysis were performed for the purpose of determining whether the obtained WPC materials obtained from oxo-biodegradable polymers and wood possess the properties making them suitable for further applications as alternatives for traditional virgin polymers.
