Wood polymer composites, visually attractive like wood and easy to produce like polymers, are a convenient and ecological choice for many applications. The composites present good mechanical properties; improved stiffness and hardness compared to substrates' properties, which resulty from the mixture composition .

5 Jun 2008. An extruded composite utilized as a building material includes a base polymer, unseparated processed recycled carpet waste, and a filler material, which may be a wood filler or other natural fiber. The recycled carpet waste may be used to decrease the amount of both base polymer and wood filler to .
The aim of the project “WPC Recycle” was to build a pilot plant for the production of decorative covered Wood Plastic Composites. With this pilot plant it should be investigated, if by producing WPC, the thermoplastic component could be exchanged up to. 100 % by recycled thermoplastics and the influence of this change on .
