  author={Gabriel Pinto and A. Maaroufi},
This article is concerned with the preparation and characterization of composite materials prepared by the compression molding of mixtures of zinc powder and urea–formaldehyde embedded in cellulose powder. The morphologies of the constituent, filler, and matrix were investigated by optical microscopy. The elaborated composites were characterized by density, which was compared with calculated values, and the porosity rate was deduced. Further, the hardness of samples remained almost constant… CONTINUE READING
