    This paper investigated foaming behaviour of cellulose fibre reinforced high density polyethylene composites. Two types of fibres were used in this study, similar in thickness and width, but differing in length. Extrusion foaming of the composites was conducted with a physical blowing agent, N 2. The results suggested that fine-celled structure was obtained in the composites without a blowing... [Show full abstract]

      This study attempted to improve the mechanical properties – and impact resistance, in particular – of rice hull/polypropylene composites with the aid of styrene-ethylene/ butylene-styrene (SEBS) and maleated styrene-ethylene/ butylene-styrene (SEBS-MA). The results suggested that both types of additives increased the impact strength of the composites significantly as their content was... [Show full abstract]

        This paper investigates the foaming behavior of wood fiber/HDPE composites with small amounts of nano-clay. The nano-clay dispersion was characterized by XRD and TEM. An extrusion foaming experiment blown with N2 was conducted. The cell nucleation and growth of composite foams were studied with varying processing parameters, such as temperature, pressure and clay content. The effect of... [Show full abstract]

          The purpose of this study was to improve the mechanical properties (such as tensile, flexural, and impact strength) of rice hull/polypropylene composites, with the use of styrene–ethylene–butylene–styrene copolymer (SEBS) and maleated styrene–ethylene–butylene–styrene copolymer (SEBS-MA). The results suggested that both types of additives increased the impact strength of the composites... [Show full abstract]
