The small moisture absorption of wood-filled thermoplastic composites is associated with extremely low swelling due to moisture which amounts to only 2% for wood-filled PP after 28-day storage (Fig. 4). Furthermore the mechanical properties of all the materials are affected by moisture as shown in Fig. 5 in the case of flexural strength.【Get Price】
