in an extruder used for manufacturing of wood-polymer composites (WPC). WPC. Due to the low thermal stability of wood, only polymers with processing temperatures lower than 200°C temperature, °C Screw speed, rpm Configuration.
4 Jun 2015 wood–plastic composites (WPCs) are a form of composite combining wood-based elements with polymers. The processes for manufacturing WPCs include extrusion, injection molding, and compression molding. WPCs is requiring process conditions (melt temperature, pressure) that will not thermally degrade the wood filler. . high screw speed (rpm) with greater risk of burning at the screw tip, and inability to keep melt temperature low with higher head pressures.
As plastic/wood composites undergo degradation at high processing temperatures, it is important to select a suitable polymer matrix that The most popular methods used to produce plastic/wood composites are compression (Umer et al., 2008), extrusion (Schirp and Stender, .. a screw heating/cooling system that allows for temperature control of the melt and high-output capacity at low screw speed.
challenge in the profile extrusion die design as an unbalanced flow causes imperfect profile output. In this study, the die balance is treated for extruding a composite of wood-plastic; a fast growing Solidification temperature. 403 K. CP.
