Modified woodflour as thermoset fillers II: Thermal degradation of woodflours and composites
(Elsevier Science, 2001-05)
Composites made from an unsaturated polyester/styrene thermoset matrix and maleic anhydride esterified woodflour have been prepared and tested. Different degrees of esterification of the wood particles with maleic anhydride ...
Modified woodflour as thermoset fillers Part I. Effect of the chemical modification and percentage of filler on the mechanical properties
Composites made from an unsaturated polyester/styrene thermoset matrix and esterified woodflour have been prepared and tested. Different degrees of esterification of the wood particles with maleic anhydride were obtained ...
Thermal and mechanical properties of woodflour/tannin adhesive composites
Composite materials formulated with a natural polyphenolic matrix (commercial tannin adhesive made from quebracho tannin extract), pine woodflour as reinforcing material, and hexamethylenetetramine as hardener were prepared ...
Composites made from lignocellulosics and thermoset polymers
(Gordon Breach Publishing, 2006-09-24)
Composites made from a stryrene/unsaturated polyester thermoset matrix and woodflours from different wood species have been prepared and tested. Pine (Pino Eliottis), eucaliptus (Eucaliptus Saligna) and marmelero (Ruprechia ...
Natural composites: polymeric matrices based on vegetable resources
(Taylor & Francis, 2006-07-01)
The aim of this work has been to develop new composites using filler and resins obtained from renewable resources, combining low cost and good mechanical properties. The raw materials selected for the polymeric matrix were ...
Toughening of wood particle composites-effects of sisal fibers
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2006-08)
Sisal fibers were added to wood particle composites to enhance their toughness. The selected matrix was a commercial styrene diluted unsaturated polyester thermoset resin. Fracture tests were carried out using single-edge ...
