field and laboratory decay evaluations of wood-plastic compositesexperimental wood–plastic composites (wpcs) were made so that they matched the manufacturing process, dimensions, and water , the shortest initiation time and the most aggressive environment for decay of wpc samples were found at the sunny site , columbia, canada (email@example.com, grace.
wood plastic composites - a primer - university of tennessee ,wood plastic composites. (wpcs) are roughly 50:50 mixtures of thermoplastic polymers and small wood particles. the wood and thermoplastics are usually compounded above the melting temperature of the thermoplastic polymers and then further pro- cessed to make various wpc prod- ucts. wpc can be manufactured in.
