Abstract or Summary
  • Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are one of the fastest-growing sectors of the wood composites industry. However, the strengths of WPCs are typically low because of the poor interfacial adhesion between hydrophilic wood and hydrophobic thermoplastics. A compatibilizer that can form bridges between wood and plastics is required to give WPCs desirable strength properties. At present, the choice of effective compatibilizers is limited and the compatibilization mechanisms are not fully understood. In this study, three novel compatibilizer systems were investigated for wood-polyethylene composites.
