Application of Organic and Inorganic Dye to Wood Plastic Composite
Authors discussed the effect of organic and inorganic dyes on the properties of wood fiber/HDPE (WF/HDPE) composite. Iron oxide red, iron oxide yellow, iron blue, everbright fast red, permanent yellow, and phthalocyanine were used. Test results indicated that organic dyes provided brighter color and higher flexible properties to WF/HDPE composite than inorganic dyes. However, when exposed to UV weathering, WF/HDPE composites with inorganic dyes were more durability than those with organic dyes.
