NEW MONOMERS USED IN MAKING WOOD PLASTICS

Basswood, eastern white pine, and sugar maple samples were impregnated with three different monomers, using various treatment conditions, and cured by the catalyst-heat technique. Monomers were t-butyl styrene, Heilman-Gulf epoxy monomer, and methyl methacrylate. Hygroscopicity, dimensional stability, static bending, impact strength, and hardness were evaluated. Data compiled make it possible to establish guidelines for the testing and use of new monomers in wood-polymer composites.
