Properties of wood plastic composites made from sesendok/ Mohammad Bakri Zulkifili

Zulkifili, Mohammad Bakri (2011) Properties of wood plastic composites made from sesendok/ Mohammad Bakri Zulkifili. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


This research was aimed to investigate the mechanical and physical properties of the thermoplastic composite from the sesendok species. The strength properties were tested for water absorption rates, thickness swelling, bending, and impact tests based on ASTM standards. In this study, two variables as the ratio of wood particles (10%, 30%, 50%) and size of wood particles (40 mesh, 60mesh, 80mesh) was performed. From the study, smaller size of wood particle and 10% of wood ratio exhibited the higher strength of wood plastic composite. From this study also, the higher filler loading, will decrease the strength of wood plastic composite.
