  • In this study, processing–structure–mechanical properties relationships in expanded wood fiber polystyrene composites (EPSC) made with a physical blowing agent were investigated. A systematic investigation was performed based on a statistical experimental design. The samples were saturated with carbon dioxide at high pressure and ambient temperature and the saturated specimens were expanded at elevated temperatures. The relations between impact and tensile properties of EPSC and foaming process… CONTINUE READING
