Comments on The Static Bending Strength of Wood-Plastic Composites

F. C. Beall, A. E. Witt

Abstract


Static bending strength values are reported for three wood-plastic composite (WPC) hardwoods. Elastic strength values became uniform after treatment, suggesting that limiting values were obtained. Uncertainties in determining WPC strength values caused by sample cross-section, soaking time in monomer, and moisture content are discussed.
