Nowadays, WPC materials are in crescent demand in many sectors besides construction, such as automotive, electric-electronics, packaging, kitchenware, etc. The main reason for this is the added value that produces the use of renewable resources (natural fillers) in the products, obtaining “green” products.
The main problem with natural compounds is that their production can have many drawbacks, associated with the degradation of the natural fillers, need for additional additivation, right selection of materials and processing conditions, etc. If any of these issues is not taken into account, the final properties will not fulfil the product requirements driving to more expensive materials, with bad aspect, high smell, and poor mechanical properties.
To avoid these problems we offer solutions to WPC users and producers based on the following guidelines:
Technical advice and assistance
We have over 15 years’ experience in WPC compounding using a broad range of natural fillers with different polymer matrices, thanks to our participation in numerous EU-funded research projects. This has given us a unique working methodology and know-how that we apply to create the most appropriate experimental design, including the most important factors affecting natural filler distribution and dispersion, and correct handling and processing.
We offer our experience and assistance in the following areas:
