- ... Moisture sorption and decay resistance of HDPE based wood plastic composites (WPC) made from poplar, Douglas-fir, black locust, white oak, and ponderosa pine were investigated. Dimensional stability of WPC made from poplar was poor while black locust performed extremely well. There were no significant gravimetric differences in composites produced using Douglas-fir, poplar, or pine exposed to Gloe ...
