Within the project, material formulae for co-extruded wood plastic products will be selected and investigated. The manufacturer AM Energy will produce the testing materials for two-layer patio boards. The materials will be selected in cooperation between AM Energy and SINTEF. The scope of mechanical testing is based on the relevance for product performance. SINTEF will perform the mechanical characterization of a set of material formulations for the co-extruded wood plastic products/two-layer patio boards).
