Wood-plastic composites WPC are widely used in USA, the most common type of such panels are produced by mixing wood flour and plastics to produce a material that can be processed similar to 100% plastic based products Ballerini 2004, Charrier 1999, Groom, Shaler and Mott.1996, Simonsen 1995 .
Wood plastic composites WPCs are roughly 50:50 mixtures of thermoplastic polymers and small wood particles. The wood and thermoplastics are usually compounded above the melting temperature of the thermoplastic polymers and then further pro- cessed to make various WPC prod- ucts.

WPC wood plastic composites have been developed in the last 10 years and significantly enlarge the possibilities of design and functionality of wood and Wood plastic composite lumber is finding a place in the market for outdoor structures such as decking.
This chapter highlights that wood-plastic composite WPC lumber is promoted as a low-maintenance, high-durability product. However, after a decade of exterior use in the construction industry, questions have arisen regarding durability.

The specimens were selected to be representative of the components expected to be used in fendering systems. Two WPC formulations were evaluated: an HDPE formulation consisting of approximately 70% wood and 30% HDPE, and a PVC formulation consisting of 50% wood and 50% PVC.
wood plastic composites WPCs . Formulations for WPCs consisted of 58% pine, 32% plastic, and 10% other addi- tives. WPC based on HDPE TP and PP TP absorbed 46-45% less water than did WPC based on HDPE UP and PP UP, respectively. Thickness swelling was reduced by 45-59%, respectively, after 2520 h of immersion. The dif-

Descriptions. Wood plastic composites WPCs are composite materials made from thermoplastic polymers, wood flour, and a small amount of process- and property-enhancing additives; they are principally used in the automotive industry and as secondary building materials. Although the WPC market is expected to keep growing,

The WPC granulate on PP basis has a wood fibre content of 50%. The adjustable furniture legs were manufactured from JELUPLAST by injection moulding. The WPC granulate on PP basis has a wood fibre content of 50%. The buttons were manufactured from JELUPLAST by injection moulding and subsequently marbled.
The Wood Plastic Composites WPCs are an important group within these new sustainable building materials. WPCs are obtained from recycled plastics and natural fibres waste. This kind of materials reduces the consumption of resources and the amount of waste.
Wood plastic composite WPC is a panel or lumber product made from recycled plastic and small wood particles or fibers. Such products are widely used in the USA for many applications including decking, roof tiles, playground equipment, picnic tables, fencing rails, window lineals and automotive components.
As its name might suggest, wood plastic composite WPC is a material created from a unique blend of natural wood and plastic fibers. Sawdust, pulp, bamboo, peanut hulls and unused woodworking materials, like bark, from a variety of projects, are combined with plastic powder to form WPC.
