Properties of wood–plastic composites made of milled particleboard

Properties of the composites did not differ significantly from those of composites with virgin industrial wood particles used for manufacturing particleboards. Moreover, these properties were comparable with the properties of typical wood–plastic composites with wood flour. Particles derived from milling particleboards have
