Supporting the development process for building products by the use of research portfolio analysis: A case study for wood plastics composite materials .... a broader perspective by gathering information from a cross-sectional study of research facilities in the German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

Weathering Characteristics of Wood Plastic Composites Reinforced ... Jul 23, 2016 ... This study investigated weathering performance of an HDPE wood plastic composite reinforced with extracted or delignified wood flour (WF). The wood flour was pre-extracted with three different solvents, toluene/ethanol (TE), acetone/water (AW), and hot water (HW), or sodium chlorite/acetic acid.
