Wood plastic composites are the combination of wood fibers and synthetic resin. Synthetic resins are thermoplastics mainly polypropylene, polyethylene or Polyvinyl Chloride. Wood is in form of sawdust or wood flours. Wood fibers are recycled Pines. Wood Plastic Composites possess dual properties of wood and plastic. On mixing a woods flours magnifies the mechanical properties and thermal properties as compared to solid thermoplastics. Wood plastic composites are manufactured by vigorous mixing of wood flours with heated thermoplastic resins. Process is followed by extrusion where mixtures are converted into desired product. Additives such as foaming agents, colorants, lubricants, and stabilizers to magnify the end product to the target area of application. Wood Plastic Composites are new class of composite materials that are becoming mainstream by technology and development. Wood Plastic Composites are becoming favored materials in building and constructions, furniture and infrastructure applications.
