Veneer prepreg – biobased prepregs for thermoplastic processing methods
At the Institute of Wood and Paper Technology, investigations on wood- and lignocellulosic-based composite materials are being carried out. In combination with bio-based thermoplastics, novel bio-composites have been made. In particular, the processing of veneers with thermoplastic matrices to veneer-prepregs has been studied.
This paper gives an overview of possible methods and production parameters in making veneer-prepregs. The application of such prepregs in different classical thermoplastic procedures, exemplarily shown in the paper, proves their processability in classical thermoplastic procedures.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
