Chemical coupling of maleated polyethylene (MAPE) copolymers at the interface in wood-fiber/high-density-polyethylene (HDPE) composites was investigated in this study. FTIR and ESCA analyses presented the evidence of a chemical bridge between the wood fiber and polymeric matrix through esterification. The feature peak of esterification occurred in the range between 1800 and 1650 cm−1 at FTIR spectra. Succinic and half succinic esters were the two primary covalent bonding products to cross-link… CONTINUE READING
