Abstract

We investigated the effects of amount of antioxidants variability on selected mechanical and physical properties of wood plastic composites. Recycled high density polyethylene (rHDPE) and natural fibers were compounded into pellets by compounder, then the pellets were extruded using co-rotating twin-screw extruder and test specimens were prepared by hot and cold press process. From the study, samples with 0.5 wt% of antioxidants produce the highest strength and elasticity of composites. The effect of antioxidants presence on water uptake is minimal.
