An Alternative to Wood. At Keller, we have the capability to blend wood with traditional thermoplastic, creating a product with the properties of both materials. Wood Composite Profiles, Keller plastics. The use of wood in thermoplastic extrusion is a relatively new technology with extensive market growth over the last decade 

Wood plastic composite (WPC) is a new material that is experiencing high growth rates worldwide. The new composite material consists of wood, plastics and additives in different proportions. WPC combines the advantages of renewable raw materials with the benefits of the fossil raw material mineral oil. With the help of 

The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of wood plastic composite extrusion. Covered in this work is a brief introduction to wood plastic composites, the equipment and processing unit operations required to manufacture wood plastic composites, and the basic material properties of wood plastic composites.

Wood plastic composites (WPCs) are a form of composite combining wood-based elements with polymers. The processes for manufacturing WPCs include extrusion, injection molding, and compression molding o. Material Advances 

Wood is not the only natural fiber used in plastics composites, but it is the most common. Wood used for WPCs is ground, screened, and dried prior to extrusion. For decking and fence profiles, where a rough surface texture is acceptable or even desirable, screening the wood fiber to 40 to 60 mesh results in
