Paper Title:
Tensile and Impact Properties Evaluation for Enviro-Recycled Wood Plastic Composite of PP/r-WF
  Abstract

The potential of recycled wood flour (r-WF) addition to the thermoplastics polypropylene (PP) matrix for the composites in structural application is evaluated. The effects of different r-WF loading to the tensile and impact mechanical structural properties are analyzed. Two types of polypropylene resin which are the virgin and the recycled resin and recycled wood flour as reinforcement materials are utilized as raw materials in the composites fabrication. Various mechanical testing was conducted in accordance to ASTM standard, to study the behavior of the composites mechanical properties to the applied load. The best compounding formulation of enviro-recycled composite was found at 60wt% of PP matrix and 40wt% of the wood flour addition for both of virgin and recycle matrix. Overall experimental results showed that, the increasing of r-WF loading had significantly increased the mechanical properties of produced composite which is suitable to be applied in the application of structural engineering, through the advantage of mechanical properties performance in tensile and impact behavior. Conclusively, this finding is hoped to lead for contribution in the development of newly advanced material that is environmental friendly for the use of structural application.
