Coupling agents in wood fiber and polymer composites (WFPC) play a very important role in improving the compatibility and adhesion between polar wood fibers and non-polar polymeric matrices. In this paper, we review coupling agents, pretrcatment, and mixing .
A silane coupling agent acts as a sort of intermediary which bonds organic materials to inorganic materials. It is this characteristic that makes silane coupling agents useful for improving the mechanical strength of composite materials, for improving adhesion, and .
Coupling agents are added to woodplastic composites to promote adhesion between the hydrophilic wood surface and hydrophobic polymer matrix, but to date no coupling agent has been reported for PVC/wood-fiber composites that significantly improved their .
When the copolymers of VTS grafted polypropylene (VSPP) and MAPP were respectively used as a new coupling agent to couple wood flour and PP matrix, .
