[PDF]WOOD PLASTIC COMPOSITES MADE FROM CORN HUSK …

composites (WPC) from corn husk fiber (CHF) and recycled polystyrene foam (rPS). The effects of fiber content and alkaline treatment on tensile thermal water absorption and morphological properties of the composites were investigated. The rPS/CHF composites were prepared using melt compounding and compression moulding processes.

Synergistic effects of fillers on recycled polystyrene ...

Jun 07 2017 Abstract. In this study we have explored the use of recycled materials such as recycled polystyrene (rPS) wood flour (WF) and short carbon fibers (SCF) to manufacture structural composite materials. Green composites were compounded from rPS (matrix) WF (fillers) and SCF (reinforcements) with varying composition in terms of their weight fractions.Author: K. P. Pramoda Q. F. Lim Shilin Chen

Thermal and Mechanical Properties of Rice Husk Flour ...

Abstract: Rice husk flour (RHF) reinforced recycled polystyrene composites were prepared by a co-rotating twin screw extruder and were injection molded to various specimens. Four levels of RHF loading (30 40 50 and 60 wt%) were used. Thermal property of composites was improved only over 485 C that was due to the higher silica content of RHF.

Dynamic mechanical analysis of recycled polystyrene ...

Dec 29 2011 The dynamic mechanical properties of wood flour (WF) reinforced recycled expanded polystyrene (r-EPS) composites were investigated as a function of the WF content and coupling agent used. With the in...

Wood Plastic Composites Produced from Postconsumer ...

Varying compositions of recycled polystyrene (rPS) coconut shell (CS) maleated polystyrene (MAPS) and Ultra-Plast WP516 were compounded using a HAAKE internal mixer and compression molded to form WPC. The effects of material formulation on mechanical thermal and morphological properties of the composites were studied.Cited by: 10

Hard wood‐composites made of rice straw and recycled ...

06/01/2017 The submitted work discussed the possibility of using two of the most problematic wastes to formulate an added‐value hard wood‐composite (HWC). The lignocellulosic rice straws (RS) fibers (as reinforced filler) and recycled expanded polystyrene foam (PS) wastes (as dispersed matrix) were used to formulated the hard wood product applying the hot …

Valorization of Plantain Stalk and Polystyrene Wastes for ...

26/06/2020 The viability of plantain fibres and solvated polystyrene resin in preparing fibrillated composites is explored in a non-thermal processing approach. In this research work plantain fibre and -based resin of recycled polystyrene were used as fillers and matrix respectively to produce a natural fibre composite.

Flexible CuS/TiO2 based composites made with recycled bags ...

Sep 01 2021 We report the use of flexible photocatalytic composites for the degradation of the 4-chlorophenol (4-CP) contaminant from the drinking water. These composites were made of recycled bags (RBag) or recycled polystyrene (RPS) from food packaging and CuS/TiO 2 (CuST) nanoparticles. The structural and morphological characterization indicate that the CuST nanoparticles have an …Author: E. Valadez-Renteria E. Barrera-Rendon J. Oliva V. Rodriguez-Gonzalez
