Recently, it has become very popular to use reinforced polyolefines with Talc, Calcium Carbonate, Mica, Glass Fiber, etc. for industrial application. We have paid particular attention to recycled newspapers as one filler for polyolefine reinforcement based on technical interest in cellulose fiber properties of paper and conservation of paper resources.
The compounding process, physical properties and injection moldability of paper reinforced polypropylene have been investigated. We have succeeded in developing a compounding process for newspaper and polypropylene with two high-speed mixers.
Thus, the paper reinforced polypropylene has good physical properties, easy mold processability and light weight for industrial applications.
