Thermal degradation and stability of wood particle composites deployed as decorative components


Dana Luca Motoc, Santiago Ferrándiz Bou, Adrian Petru Pop

The contribution aims to design, deliver and debate on thermal degradation and thermal stability of several wood/PP composite materials. The wood polymer-based composites (n. WPCs) were manufactured through injection moulding by deploying various wood species under 10% and 40% weight fraction within the thermoplastic matrix. Thermal degradation of WPC specimens revealed similarities in characteristics, small discrepancies in the degradation temperatures but higher contents in the char formation, between 10% to 35% with wood content increase.
