Some Properties of Wood Plastic Composites Produced from Waste Cups
MetadataShow full item record
To use of recycled and waste thermoplastics materials has been recently considered for producing wood plastic composites (WPCs). In this study, we use four different formulations on the disposable cups, recycled polymers (recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP)) to produce WPCs. The effect of different polymers and coupling agents used were determined on some physical, mechanical and thermal properties in WPCs samples. Use of waste paper cups for the production of WPCs, it was not determinet any negative affects on physical, mechanical and thermal analysis. Also it was determinet that WPCs as a produced from waste paper cups have the appropriate mechanical strength. This study suggested that using recycled waste paper cups as a filler can be potantially utilized in production of WPCs.
