introduction. the basic unit of wood and other plant structures is the plant cell, the smallest living matter unit capable of functioning independently. cells manufacture proteins, polysaccharides, and mineral deposits. polysaccharides are macromolecular carbohydrates and the principal components of wood.
making a composite. in the case of mud bricks, the two roles are taken by the mud and the straw; in concrete, by the cement and the aggregate; in a piece of wood, by the cellulose and the lignin. in fibreglass, the reinforcement is provided by fine threads or fibres of glass, often woven into a sort of cloth, and the matrix is a plastic.
this recycled invention, zeoform is an innovative material that is expected to replace wood and wood composites as well as fiberglass and plastics in the production of every day consumer items. this material is made from transforming just waste paper and water into a patented molding material that is touted by its manufacturer, zeo, to be as hard as ebony.
the answer, you might be surprised to find, is that people have come up with solutionsthey just havent quite reached the mainstream market yet. though they havent picked up steam as fast as, say, the selfie stick, youll find that the new inventions below are just as brilliant, and hopefully will catch on soon.
these materials include wood composites and wood plastic composites. provided are engineered wood materials containing oleaginous microbial biomass, methods for their preparation, and uses thereof. wo34a1 - wood composites - google patents

the handbook of wood chemistry and wood composites concludes with the latest applications, such as adhesives, geotextiles, and sorbents, and future trends in the use of wood-based composites in terms of sustainable agriculture, biodegradability and recycling, and economics.
latest advances in areas such as cell wall and wood formation; structural and chemical composition of wood and wood composites and their property relations; physical, mechanical and chemical characterization and relevant methodological developments, and microbiological degradation of wood and wood based products are reported.
scientists invent super wood that could replace steel. the pressure kick-starts a chemical bond between the different forms of atoms that make up the wood's cellular structure, greatly strengthening the material in the process. the researchers say that the treatment can be applied to bulk amounts of wood at once, and allows them to bend and mold the material into the desired shape at the start.
the manufacturing science has opened up new frontiers, effectively moving component design down to materials design. the spectacular gain in performance has seen the increasing use of these materials despite the cost and increased difficulty in design, shaping, and recycling, such that the new boeing 787 uses composites extensively in its wings and fuselage.
the modern era of composites began in the 20th century with the invention of early plastics such as bakelite and vinyl as well as engineered wood products like plywood. another crucial composite, fiberglas, was invented in 1935. it was far stronger than earlier composites, could be molded and shaped, and was extremely lightweight and durable.
unlike chocolate chip cookies or tomato soup, the invention of bread can't be pinned down to a single person or people; instead, it evolved to its present state over the course of millennia. a transformer designed to do grunt work for the oil industry and military is coming, and it's admittedly kind of fun to look at.
science non -fiction the latest from ne campuses. posted november 29, 2011. a look at recent developments in new england higher education shows a region struggling to hold onto its historical research prowess and adding new health programs, but also facing rising costs and declining funds.
abstract. oriented strand board osb is an engineered, composite, wood-based panel product, designed as a structural replacement for sheathing grades of plywood. osb is characterised by its constituent strand elements which vary in size and aspect ratio and are larger than the chips from which chipboard is pressed.
wood composites latest invention paranormalinvestigations.org . wood plastic composites are still new materials relative to the long history of natural lumber as a building material the most widespread use of wpcs in north america is in outdoor deck floors, but it is also used for railings, fences, landscaping timbers, cladding and siding, park benches, molding and trim, window and door
decking wood, composites and stone ages of lumber being the only choice for decking material with the invention of composite decking the latest fad. leave a message as seven trust is the inventor of wood-alternative composite decking, they are no stranger to innovation.
the history of composite materials in manufacturing predates manufacturing as we know it today. from b.c. to the present, different types of composites were developed and used for a wide variety of applications. ancient times. the times b.c. marked the beginning of types of composites materials used in daily applications.
