The market for injection moulded and extruded WPC products The use of wood fibres as filler in polymers dates back to the early 1900s. With the introduction of thermoplastics, the first commercial application of wood polymer composite (wpc) appeared in the mid-1950s, with the production of a wooden flooring tile made of PVC and wood flour. The most common technologies for producing wpcs today are extrusion and injection moulding, although some other technologies are also emerging. Several academic institutes along with some
Injection moulding with natural fibres - Materials Today 22 Apr 2008 For example, the cumulated energy demand (CED) in the production of hemp fibres amounts to only 10% of the energy demand in glass fibre production. Technological development of these materials is more advanced than ever before and the production costs are now thoroughly competitive. Polypropylene natural fibre injection moulding compounds (PP-NF) and wpc in particular represent attractive alternatives to the hitherto mass-produced plastics. Accordingly
What You Should Know About Molding Wood-Plastic Composites A wider range of material options for wpc formulations is opening new opportunities for molders. Recycled and biodegradable plastic feedstocks can further enhance the sustainability of these materials. There are an increasing number of aesthetic options, which can be manipulated by varying the wood species and wood particle size in the composite. In short, optimization for injection molding and the growing list of options available to compounders mean wpcs are a much more
Injection molding WPC - DiVA injection molding wpc by. Carl S:t Clair Renard. MG101X Bachelor thesis in design and product realization. KTH Industrial technology and management. Industrial production. SE-100 44 STOCKHOLM It describes the machinery used for producing wpc, and gives a introduction to mold manufacturing. The use of wpc as an alternative to pure thermoplastics in injection molding processes is discussed. Furthermore it is described how wpcs differ from pure thermoplastics in terms of.

Injection Moldable Advanced WPC アイ-コンポロジー株式会社 Usually, wpc's melt viscosity is remarkably large, if you raise the molding temperature at 200℃ higher in order to reduce the melt viscosity, wood components will thermally decompose, resulting in bad odors and burns resulting in blackening. There are many difficulties to realize commercial production by injection molding. The manufacturing technology that we have established for wpc allows injection molding, which up to now has been regarded as impossible. “i-wpc” can be
Wood for moulding - Plastix World 30 May 2014 Respect for the environment, natural resources and materials are the requisites for a new range of wood plastic composite materials that also offer enviable mechanical performance. Moulding wood: this is the idea that inspired Plasticwood, a company from Verona with a well established track record in manufacturing wpc (i.e. wood plastic composites) which are suitable for extrusion processing and the production of extruded profiles which are then marketed as a
Injection Molding Wood-Plastic Composites : Plastics Technology However, recent developments in the manufacture of wpc compounds have significantly improved the quality, consistency, and capability of this environmentally friendly material. In fact, the latest generation of wpcs can be run smoothly through traditional injection molding equipment with minimal adjustments to process settings and no physical hardware modifications. However, these materials do have some processing characteristics that distinguish them from familiar molding

Baerlocher: Wood Plastic Composites wpc based on polyolefins (HDPE, PP) are typically processed by means of direct extrusion and injection molding, while PVC-based wpc are processed using direct extrusion, co-extrusion or pressing technology. Baerlocher offers an extensive portfolio of additives for the extrusion of wood-polyethylene and wood-polypropylene composites. The BAEROLUB range of one-pack lubricant systems was developed to make extruded profiles easier to process, and to improve the quality of
