Polymer Technologist

Dec 2006 to Jul 2007 & present

Project Title: Composite material manufactured from a binder system including waste dry paint coating powder

Abstract: A process for manufacturing a water resistant board from wood fibre involves the use of a liquid binder system using waste powder coating powder (either a thermosetting resin such as polyester or epoxy or a thermoplastic powder) together with a water based acrylic paint. A typical composite board is made by mixing together from 15% to 30% of waste powder coating powder, typically a polyester thermosetting resin, with sawdust having a particle size typically below 3mm, there being from 40% to 75% of sawdust in the mix, and from 0.1% to 30% of a water based acrylic paint. All of the ingredients used to produce this board are typically waste materials, mixed in a low sheer mixer, then moulded under heat and pressure, either continuously, or in individual moulds, to allow the thermoplastic and thermosetting resins to cure, and to encapsulate the sawdust particles to produce a waterproof composite board.
