The technical field

The present invention relates to a composite material used to manufacture the product made use of instead of the material for internal use (such as flooring material, wall material, covering material, sound insulating wall and fittings) and treated wood. More specifically, the present invention relates to a composite comprising fibers obtained from bagasse, and a thermoplastic polymer, the preparation method of the composite material for internal use, use it.

The level of technology

The preference of consumers in natural wood greatly increased in recent years. Also, since the cutting natural wood has led to an increase in carbon dioxide, there was a danger to the environment. Thus, increased the need to develop a material made with the possibility of replacement of natural wood, especially in the case of building materials with significant demand for natural wood.

Given the above problem, the search of the composite having a structure and appearance similar to natural wood, were intensively in recent years.

Accordingly, there has been proposed a composite that includes a small amount of wood is s, or non-wood composite. For example, traditional composites are divided into plywood and MDF (wood-fiber Board medium density). Plywood a type of composite is made by sawing solid wood, color one side surface or both side surfaces of wood, wood drying, gluing film and so forth on the wood with adhesive, wood drying and cutting of timber on a given length. MDF is made by rubbing a solid wood or wood waste into powder, adding a large amount of resin powder and thermal compression of the mixture. MDF can be attached to natural Spano or synthetic Spano, and then processed for appropriate use.

However, such composite wood causes environmental pollution due to the fact that the composition of the adhesive included hazardous materials. Also, the problem of MDF that occurs the compression/expansion between the veneer and the wood plate, and attached veneer is separated, split or rot from the penetration of external moisture and so on.

Also, Publication of Japanese patent No. 1995-080809 (1995.03.28) discloses a waterproof cardboard, using bagasse instead of wood. Waterproof cardboard is prepared by mixing fibers (2-8 cm) and the powder obtained by grinding bagasse, IU the amine resin and/or phenolic resins. However, in the preparation of waterproof cardboard, melamine resin and/or phenolic resin as the adhesive bonds the fibers and the powder with each other, and does not impregnate large fibers, since the resin is not able to penetrate into the fibers due to their large size. Accordingly, the waterproof cardboard shows a low resistance (e.g., strength) as compared with the case where the resin impregnated in the fiber. Also, waterproof cardboard has a problem in that the adhesion of a melamine resin and/or phenolic resin is reduced liquid and so on for a long time, and the cardboard is easily torn or partially separated. Also, waterproof cardboard molded into a slab termocompressive molding, and thus may not have many forms and types. Furthermore, the material comprising melamine resin and/or phenolic resin cannot be reused, and thus is not environmentally safe.

Accordingly, it is required to conduct a study of the composite, which does not use wood that has less distortion and high strength, and does not fade even when exposed to sunlight, and is environmentally safe.

Description

Technical problem

The present invention is to provide the group of high-strength composite and method of its preparation in which the composite can be safely used for a long time without deformation (e.g., tearing, separation, warping and fading.

Also, another objective of this invention is the provision of material for internal use (such as flooring material, wall material, covering material, sound insulating wall and accessories)using the composite.

Technical solution

In accordance with an aspect of the present invention, is provided a composite comprising 55-75 wt.% fiber and 25-45 wt.% thermoplastic polymer, in which the fibers are derived from bagasse and have a particle size of 40-120 mesh, and the ratio of length to diameter of from 3:1 to 5:1.

In accordance with another aspect of the present invention, is provided a method of making a composite, comprising the steps: preparation of bagasse with less than 5 wt.% the moisture content of de-hydration bagasse, obtained as a by-product of the process of refining sugar from sugar cane; collecting fibers location prepared bagasse on a conveyor belt, having mounted on it a grid, and filtration bast; softening of the collected fibers are added to water and ramming fibers; grinding the softened fibers, using grain peeling machine; mixing in the melt 55-75 wt.% PR is made of fibers with 25-45 wt.% thermoplastic polymer at a high temperature; and extruding the fiber-polymer mixture.

Also, the present invention provides a material for internal use, using the composite.

Useful effects of the invention

The original composite consists mainly bagasse, and thus environmentally friendly. Also, it is high due to the coupling between bagasse and thermoplastic polymer as the main components). Thus, it has excellent strength (such as tensile strength, bending strength, impact strength) and elasticity, and also it is not susceptible to swelling. Moreover, even if [he] is exposed to sunlight for a long time, fading does not occur.

Due to the presence of these physical characteristics, the composite is not destroyed and is not separated when a strong external impact. Also, the composite is not deformed, because it does not swell when exposed to liquids such as rain water and drinks) or sunlight.

Also, the original composite has a natural structure and pattern similar to natural wood, and has a light weight, which enables it to be easily transported and erected from his designs. Moreover, it is less vulnerable to attack harmful insects, and thus can be used for a longer time in comparison with the trees is the first composite.

Also, such a composite can be reused by melting, and can be used for the manufacture of products made with the possibility of replacement of various materials for internal use (such as flooring material, wall material, covering material, sound insulating wall and fittings) and treated wood.

Brief description of drawings

The above and other objectives, features and advantages of the present invention will become more clear from the following detailed description, when considered in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, on which:

FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing the method of making a composite material according to a preferred variant implementation of the present invention.

The best option of carrying out the invention

Hereinafter, examples of embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

The present invention provides a composite comprising fibers obtained from bagasse and a thermoplastic polymer, and the method of its preparation, in which the composite is environmentally safe, shows high strength and can be used as a material for internal use.

Further, the present invention will be described in detail.

The original composite VK is uchet in itself 55-75 wt.% fibers, obtained from bagasse, and 25-45 wt.% thermoplastic polymer. Also, the composite may optionally include additives in addition to the fibers and thermoplastic polymer.

Bagasse used in the present invention, obtained as a by-product in the refining process of sugar from sugar cane. Bagasse represents the remains after squeezing sucrose from the trunk (stem) sugar cane, and has a white or slightly yellowish color.

This bagasse is quite valuable for use as a material to replace wood and fiber. Especially, since in the preparation of the composite, the replacement of wood-plastic composite that uses the wood is used crop, bagasse can play an important role in improving farm profitability and reducing air pollution caused by the incineration of waste. Also, bagasse obtained after the process of refining sugar from sugar cane, has a density and volume suitable for transportation and storage, and thus can be easily used. The fibers used in the present invention, preferably milled into a fine powder. Here, the fiber has a particle size of from 40 to 120 mesh, preferably from 80 to 100 mesh. Milled fibers preferably have a length to diameter of from 3:1 is about 5:1.

Fiber and thermoplastic polymer is melted at a high temperature, while thermoplastic polymer impregnates the pores of the fibers to provide a fiber-polymer mixture. Meanwhile, when the fibers have a particle size less than 40 mesh, fiber and polymer is not sufficiently United to each other due to the large size of particles fibers. Thus, the polymer or particle fiber may be unevenly distributed. Also, when the fiber has a particle size of more than 120 mesh, when the fibers are mixed with thermoplastic polymer, thermoplastic polymer may be effective to impregnate the pores of the fibers.

Also, when the fibers have a length to diameter is less than 3:1, the polymer material may be effective to impregnate the fiber, which can reduce the wear resistance of the material. On the other hand, when the fiber length to diameter is more than 5:1, it can be difficult to impregnate thermoplastic polymer in the pores of the fibers because of their great length.

Fibers obtained from bagasse, included in the composition in an amount of 55-75 wt.%, preferably 65-75 wt.%. Here, when the fibers included in the composition in an amount less than 55 wt.%, the amount of thermoplastic polymer increases. It is environmentally unsafe. Also, when the fiber is included in the composition in an amount of more than 75 wt.%, the number is termoplastycznego polymer decreases. This reduces the strength of the composite when exposed to water, the composite may be deformed.

thermoplastic polymer is one kind or two or more kinds selected from the group consisting of polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polystyrene (PS), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Also, as a thermoplastic polymer, can be used waste plastic.

Also, fiber-polymer mixture made from fibers and a thermoplastic polymer, may optionally include an additive. The additive is included in the composition in an amount of 8-10 weight parts relative to 100 weight parts of the fiber polymer.

Supplement is one kind or two or more kinds selected from the group consisting of binder, antioxidant, UV stabilizer, UV absorber, lubricant, mineral filler, dye pigments, flame retardant additives, thermo stabilizer and foaming agent. The original composite can be used for the manufacture of material for internal use, such as flooring material, wall material, covering material, sound insulating wall and furniture, and here, kind of additives varies according to the type of material for internal use.

Material for internal use includes the materials for internal use within and outside of a building.

For example, when the original composite is used for the manufacture of flooring material, 1-2 parts by weight of UV stabilizer, 1-2 parts by weight of UV absorber, 2-4 parts by weight of the coloring matter and 1-2 parts by weight of foaming substances are used relative to 100 parts by weight of the fiber polymer. When the composite is used for the manufacture of cladding material, the covering material or sound-proof wall, 0.5 to 2 parts by weight of mineral filler, 2-4 parts by weight of a flame retardant additive and 2-4 parts by weight of binding can be used relative to 100 parts by weight of the fiber polymer. Also, when the composite is used for reinforcement, 1-2 parts by weight of antioxidant, 1-2 parts by weight of thermo stabilizer, 2-4 parts by weight of a flame retardant additive, 1-2 parts by weight of lubricants and 1-2 parts by weight of the coloring matter can be used relative to 100 parts by weight of the fiber polymer. However, the present invention is not limited, and other additives can be optionally used for the manufacture of material for internal use.

Among the additives, a binder is used to improve the coupling strength between the fibers and thermoplastic polymer, antioxidant blocks the oxygen and ultravio movoe radiation and prevents discoloration, UV stabilizer to prevent discoloration caused by UV radiation, UV absorber absorbs UV radiation and lubricant improves the distribution of fibers in the form of fine powder. Also, mineral filler prevents deformation caused by impact, heat or stress, the dye stains the product, fire-retardant additive is used to provide heat-resistant product, thermo stabilizer reduces thermal degradation during manufacture or use, and foaming substance spanaway fiber.

The original composite made with reusable because it can be reused by melting.

As shown in FIG. 1, an original method for making a composite material includes the steps: preparation of fibers (S110), mixing in the melt 55-75 wt.% the prepared fibers with 25-45 wt.% thermoplastic polymer at a high temperature (S120) and extruding the fiber-polymer mixture (S130). Step (S110) preparation of fibers includes the steps of preparing bagasse having less than 5 wt.% the moisture content of de-hydration bagasse, obtained as a by-product of the process of refining sugar from sugar cane; collecting fibers location prepared bagasse on a conveyor belt, having set the Lenna her net, and filtration bast; softening of the collected fibers are added to water and ramming fibers; and grinding the softened fibers using grain peeling machine. Also, between the S120 and S130 may be further included the step of introducing additives.

At step (S110) preparation of fibers, the fibers are derived from bagasse. In General, bagasse contains 20-40 wt.% water immediately after the process of refining sugar. However, in the present invention, in order to separate the bast (core) and fiber, the moisture content in bagasse should be less than 5 wt.%. If the moisture content is equal to or more than 5 wt.%, bast is attached to the fibers. Thus, it can be difficult to separate only the obtained fiber, and product quality can be reduced due to bubbles in the inside of the composite.

Digidrirovanny bagasse with less than 5 wt.% moisture content is moved on a conveyor belt, having mounted on it a grid, at the same time share on the bark and fiber. On the conveyor belt, set the grid size 4,0-6,0 mm Thus, the bast passes through the net, and 90% or more of the bark is removed, while fiber does not pass through the grid and moves along the conveyor belt, in order to gather in one place. Bast, separated through the net, is about 1/3 of bagasse, and fiber - about 2/3 of bagasse.

Secadora to have the size of the cells, through which the people can go and fibers cannot pass, and preferably has a size 4,0-6,0 mm Mesh can be installed on a conveyor belt in various ways without specific limitations.

Conveyor belt is usually a little shaken, and thus preferred in the process, in which bagasse is divided into the bark and fiber. However, before placing it on the conveyor belt, bagasse more preferably a little shaken, to facilitate separation of the bark from the fibers.

The fibers are separated, as described, washed with sufficient amount of water. This is done to remove dust contained in the fibers, and foreign substances (such as sugar), attached to the fibers after the process of refining sugar, and can be selectively performed in accordance with the state of the industry. Also, the amount of leaching may vary. In traditional technology, needed a washing step using a chemical substance. However, for the present invention is sufficient washing with water. After washing, the water and the fibers are collected, and then performs the following steps. Water used for washing, reused by cleaning with a filter.

In the fiber from which it was removed foreign substance, again add water, and they softened ramming and what selenium. The moisture content is not limited to a particular sign. However, for convenience of compacting, water is added so that the weight ratio of fiber to water is about 1:1. In the process of softening water makes fiber hydrated. This allows softening of the fibers without the chemical substance. Water used in this step can also be reused.

Means for softening are not limited to specific means. However, instead of a metal machine, wood machine, for example, a wooden mortar, preferably used when ramming a metal tool fiber can be deeply corrupt or compressed and crushed. Pressure for stage softening can be changed from 1 to 2 kgf/cm2in accordance with the number of fibers.

The softened fiber dehydrations and grind grain peeling machine (refining) so that they can have a particle size of 40-120 mesh, and the ratio of length to diameter of from 3:1 to 5:1. As grain peeling machine, can be used to machine conventionally used in the art. In General, wood is ground grain peeling machine in the forward direction. However, in the present invention, more preferably to result in the movement of grain peeling machine in the reverse direction, so that the fiber could become quite loose.

B the Gass solid. Thus, at the stage where a sufficient amount of water absorbed by bagasse, bagasse can be softened by being crushed. In grain peeling machine, the disk can rotate in the opposite direction instead of straight direction, in order to twist the fiber. This may allow the fibers to be more loose and flowing, and thus improve the strength of connections between the fibers. Accordingly, because the fibers become loose power connection between the fibers is increased in the preparation of the composite, thus increasing the tensile strength.

At the step (S120) mixing fibers with a thermoplastic polymer, 55-75 wt.% fibers prepared at S110, are mixed in the melt with 25-45 wt.% thermoplastic polymer at a high temperature of 150-200C, in order to provide fiber-polymer mixture. In the prepared fiber-polymer mixture, thermoplastic polymer is absorbed into the pores of loose fibers to improve the strength of connections between the fibers and thermoplastic polymer, and to provide a fiber-polymer mixture of high density.

At step (130) extruding the fiber-polymer mixture, the fiber-polymer mixture prepared in S120, extruded by using thermocompression at 130-140C, 20-25 kg/cm2within 15-20 minutes, to provide the composite. The composite is formed of molded the internal structure, and is cooled with cooling water in order to save the form. Then, the material for internal use can be obtained for the desired use (indoors or outdoors).

After step S120, the step of introducing an additive in accordance with the type of material for internal use may additionally be added.

Further, the present invention will be described with reference to Examples. However, the following Examples are only for illustrative purposes. Specialists in the art it is clear that various modifications, additions and substitutions are possible without departure from the scope and essence of the invention as disclosed in the accompanying claims.

Here, the fibers comprise about 2/3 of bagasse. The obtained fibers were cut into a size of 3 cm and washed in order to remove the remaining sugar and dust. The washed fiber was utrambovyvat and were ground together with water in the ratio 1:1 for 5 minutes at 2 kgf/cm2to soften. Here, the quality of the car, instead of a metal machine, which had been the wooden mortar.

Then, the softened fibers were milled grain peeling machine in the refining process. Here, the grinding was performed in the opposite direction instead of straight direction so that the fiber could be loose. Milled fibers have a particle size of 90 mesh, and the ratio of length to diameter of 4:1.

70 g of the fibers were mixed in the melt with 30 g of polypropylene at 170C and extruded at 140C at 20 kgf/cm2within 20 minutes, to provide the composite.

As noted in table 1, the composites of Examples 1-3 have excellent strength (such as tensile strength, bending strength, impact strength) and elasticity, and do not inflate, undergoing a small change in size.

Meanwhile, it was found that as the particle size of the fiber and the ratio of length to diameter of composites of Comparative examples 1 and 2 were not in compliance with the option of performing the present invention, strength and elastic modulus were reduced. Moreover, due to the large size changes, the composite was bent or elongated. Also, compared with Examples 1-3, the composites of Comparative examples 1-3 showed high adsorption capacity. Thus, it may be found that the wear resistance of the composite was reduced.

Also, after the composites of Examples 1-3 and Comparative examples 1-3 were subjected to UV radiation for 30 days, discoloration was observed with the naked eye. As a result, compared with composites using fiber obtained from bagasse, composite, using wood from Comparative example 3, gradually becomes yellowish.
