Components made of wood plastic composites are used in exterior application, where in comparison with nature wood composite do not require further maintenance (predetermine to long-term usage for its physical and mechanical properties). Adding wood to plastic significantly increases mechanical properties (utmost stiffness), reduces thermal expansion of the plastic and decreases of cost. Design of product is not limited by material and technology and is possible to product different types of profile and shapes. Nowadays demand on wood plastic composites is with increasing character. For this reason, a better understanding of this composite material in regards to machining and texture of surface is necessary. The paper deals with a comparison of the surface roughness of Wood Plastic Composite with traditional wood (oak) after turning. Presented paper is focused on observation changes of average maximum height Rz with change of speed of feeds f and speed of rotations nc (simultaneously compare predicted and real values of surface roughness parameter Rz). Experiment was realized with monolithic cutting tool made of high speed steel (EN ISO HS6-5-2) with positive geometry. Machining of WPC was in direction parallel to extruding axe, and verification sample in parallel fiber direction. Graphical evaluation of experimental values was realized using software OriginLab. Detecting surface quality was made using microscopic camera DigiMicro 2.0
Main objective of presented scientific article is to define mechanical properties of polypropylene Mosten GB 005 in dependence on prescribed precentral ratio of recycled regranulate. Polypropylene Mosten GB 005 is a general purpose homopolymer, intended for injection moulding and for production of thermoforming films. It can be also used for production of various compounds. Experimental verification of mechanical properties was realized by testing samples produced with various concentrations of the recycled material. Experimental samples were realized undergo tests to obtain mechanical properties of produced new material (on these tests were realized and evaluated rheological tests, tensile and flexural tests as well as hardness and Charpy impact toughness tests). Experimental samples were divided into 7 classes depend on percentage ratio of added recycled material into raw material concretely 0%,10%,20%,30%,50%,70% a 100 %. Mentioned mechanical tests were realized according to ISO standards valid for individual testing method. Each testing method was carried out using prescribed numbers of testing samples. The flexure test was realized on five experimental testing samples and subsequent tests were carried out on ten experimental samples from each class of produced material. Presented scientific article is also focused on changes in microstructures of testing materials in depends on percentage ratio of recycled regranulate. Recycled regranulate of thermoplastic was not necessity to additionally modify. Presented article also contain experimental verification of thermal properties using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC).
