Abstract

The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of absorbed water on the mechanical properties of wood plastic as well as natural fiber reinforced composites. Different composites, with variations in wood content, wood type (and also with flax fibers) and polymer type were produced via twin screw extrusion and injection molding. Mechanical testing (tensile and impact properties) was carried out on samples in the initial state and after certain intervals of water storage. The results are discussed in terms of wood and fiber content and type as well as polymer type, to show the correlation between water uptake and formulation of the composites.
