high density fiberboard vs. wood. the use of composite materials for construction and product manufacturing has increased greatly over the past few decades, thanks in part to the innovation of dense fiberboards. these newer materials were developed as a replacement for standard wood products, such as plywood and natural wood veneers and flooring,
the automotive industry has adopted composites slowly due to their higher costs. particulate reinforced plastics have been used for some time but fiber reinforced composites have only really been used in high end sports cars but are starting to make their way into traditional vehicles. race cars have used carbon fiber materials for many years.
this study focuses on a class of metal matrix composites which derive their strength and stiffness from continuous unidirectional fiber reinforcement. the tech high fiber volume fraction metal matrix composites cast under bi-dimensional compressionjournal of composite materials - d.j. senor, k.l. peddicord, l.r. cornwell, 1993
as can be derived from fig. 5, composites with high ronp fiber content possess low internal bonding strength. wood fiber is a kind of stiff organic filler, so adding fiber could decrease the internal bonding strength of the composite.
keywords composites, volume fraction, reed particles, wood particles, phenolic resins 1. introduction polymeric materials reinforced with synthetic fibers such as glass, carbon and aramid provide advantages of high stiffness and strength to weight ratio as compared to conventional construction materials, that is; wood, concrete and steel.

high-load wood fiber composite. and just coming on the market now is a lower-density offshoot of lignoflex, called lignolight. although the latter uses the same basic matrix/reinforcements as the former, this sheet-form composite is produced at a density of 1,400 g/m² instead of the 1,800 to 2,000 g/m² of lignoflex,
fiber materials inc. is a maker of very high-end composite materials, including for nasa's orion spacecraft, which later in this decade aims to take humans into deep space, including mars, and
controlled tension, squeezing action, and controlled winding pattern, the fiber content can be very high so produces composites with one of the highest mechanical properties. disadvantage: winding process is time consuming and is the cause of low productivity.
a. uses of composites: composite materials are used in aircraft manufacturing because they have a higher strength to weight ratio than metal components. composites are composed of an epoxy resin matrix with a high strength fiber reinforcement. the most common composite material in civilian
materials contain a polyolefin, either high density polyethylene hdpe or polypropylene pp , as the resin matrix for reasons of both low cost and processing compatibility with wood fiber. this latter point is important because the thermal stability of wood fiber and natural fibers in general limits its processing temperatures to about 210 c.
our composite panels are custom engineered by varying core thicknesses to increase or decrease stiffness; by varying core materials including end-grain balsa, foam or engineered woods to increase or decrease weight; by varying fiber to modify the stiffness-to-weight ratio; and by varying resin material to increase or decrease strength.
high-performance composites derive their structural properties from continuous, oriented, high-strength fiber reinforcement most commonly carbon, aramid or glass in a matrix that promotes processability and enhances mechanical properties, such as stiffness and chemical resistance.
