Abstract

Polypropylene (PP) impregnated PET fiber pellets with an initial length of 15mm have been used in this study as reinforcement of PP and PP based WPC (Wood Polymer Composites). Injection molded PP - wood flour - PET long fiber formulations showed a synergistic effect by using both fillers. The combination acts as effective impact modifier for PP and WPC.
