Influence of Polar Monomers on the Performance of Wood Fiber Wood fibers and nonpolar thermoplastics, e.g. polystyrene, are not the ideal partner for the preparation of composites because of a wide difference in their polarity. In the present study, polarity of the polystyrene was modified by the introduction of a—COOH group, through the reaction with maleic anhydride (MA) in the
Characterization of composites based on expanded polystyrene This paper aims to evaluate the potential for the use of recycled expanded polystyrene and wood flour as materials for the development of wood plastic composites. The effects of wood flour loading and coupling agent addition on the mechanical properties and morphology of wood thermoplastic composites were examined.

Effect of Wood Fibers on the Rheological and Mechanical Properties Feb 10, 2017 The effects of wood fibers on the rheological and mechanical properties of polystyrene/wood (PS/wood) composites were investigated. The composites with different ratios of PS and wood were prepared by means of internal mixer and, additionally, two different sizes of the wood particles were used, such
