The most commonly used thermoplastics in manufacturing wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are polyethylene (PE) [ 2 – 4 ], polypropylene (PP) [ 5 – 7 ], polystyrene (PS) [ 8 , 9 ], and polyvinyl

Granulated rubber obtained from used tyres, below 1.5 mm granularity (fine rubber) and polyurethane prepolymers (Chemolan
M, Chemolan M50 and Chemolan B3) were used for the synthesis of rubber waste-polyurethane composites, containing 90, 85, 80,
75 and 70%w/w of fine rubber. The influence of the kind of polyurethane resin on hardness, elasticity, glass transition temperature and
thermal stability of composites was studied. Kinetic parameters of the thermal degradation process of composites were calculated
from thermogravimetric analysis (TG) data.

Vermiculite clay (VMT) was organically modified with a quaternary organic salt and added to polypropylene (PP). The compounds
were prepared by melt intercalation using a twin extruder. The morphology of the composites was investigated through wide-angle
X-ray diffraction (WAXD). The WAXD results suggested that exfoliation phenomena were found for the composites with modified
clay. The thermal properties of the obtained composites were studied by means differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and
thermogravimetry (TG) measurements. A variation in the crystallinity of PP was found. A significant increase of the thermal
stability of PP was achieved in the presence of the modified VMT.
