Wood Polypropylene (PP) Composites Manufactured by Mango Wood Waste with Virgin or Recycled PP: Mechanical, Morphology, Melt Flow Index and Crystalline Behaviour

Wood Polypropylene (PP) Composites Manufactured by Mango Wood Waste with Virgin or Recycled PP:... Compositions of wood-polypropylene composites (WPCs) are prepared through melt compounding followed by injection moulding.

Abstract

Compositions of wood-polypropylene composites (WPCs) are prepared through melt compounding followed by injection moulding. WPCs are formulated for eight compositions with a different weight ratio of wood, virgin or recycled polypropylene and coupling agent. WPCs compositions are compared in terms of Melt Flow Index, Tensile, FESEM images, Flexural and crystallinity index for same operating variable conditions. From the results, recycled polypropylene based WPCs are superior in comparison to virgin polypropylene based WPCs. With the addition of 5 % coupling agent in recycled polypropylene-based composites for 45:50 composition, tensile and flexural values of WPCs are higher in comparison to all composition and neat virgin or recycled polypropylene. This work stands for the utilization of waste wood with recycled plastic for replacement of wood and virgin plastic.
