The use of silane technology in crosslinking polyethylene/wood flour composites
Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim.

Abstract [en]

In this study, the use of silane technology in crosslinking polyethylene-wood flour composites have been investigated. Composites were produced in a one-step process using a co-rotating twin-screw extruder. The composites were stored in a sauna and at room temperature to study the effect of humidity on the degree of crosslinking. Crosslinked composites showed improved toughness and creep properties compared to non-crosslinked composites. The flexural modulus, on the other hand, was lower in the crosslinked samples than in the non-crosslinked ones. FTIR was used to study the crosslinking reaction in the samples. X-ray mapping of the silicon signal was also performed to locate the silane in the composites. This study provides a basis for proposing, that part of the silane is grafted onto polyethylene and wood thereby creating a crosslinked network in the matrix with chemical bonds (covalent and hydrogen bonding) to wood. The other part of the silane remains un-reacted and blends into the system.
