Paper Title:
Manufacturing of Wood-Plastic Composite from Completely Recycled Materials
  Abstract

In this study, wastes of wood cutting mills (wood flour) as well as wastes of textile industry (granules of polypropylene) were used in manufacturing wood-plastic composites. Hence, wood flour with weight percent of 30, 35 and 40 was mixed with corresponding amount of polypropylene and coupling agent, polypropylene grafted maleic anhydride in amount of 6 percent was used in whole compounds. Production was done by batch method and with employment of hot press and after preparation and cutting of specimens physical and mechanical properties of them was studied. The results showed that with increase of wood flour up to 35 percent, MOR, MOE, water absorption and thickness swelling increases but further than it mechanical and physical properties decreases. Besides, increase of wood flour up to 40 percent increased the hardness of the specimens.
