Processing considerations for wood-plastic composites. Weve discussed factors of wood-plastic composite that affect design, but what about during the processing phase of plastic production?
Wood plastic composite. In some manufacturing facilities, the constituents are combined and processed in a pelletizing extruder, which produces pellets of the new
The ratio of wood to plastic in the chosen formula of a wood-plastic composite will have some effect on its behavior as it goes through the production process. The percentage of wood present in the composite will have an effect on the melt flow index MFI , for example.
Part of the manufacturing process is the produciton of WPC wood-plastic composite, which the final product is made of. This allows us to influence the quality of the products from the beginning by using the best ingredients.
