Abstract

Presented article is focused on characteristic of WPC (Wood Plastic Composite) and monitoring the effect of variant cutting conditions during technology of mill-ing on result amplitude parameters describing surface topography (Ra and Rz) – after machining of WPC with natural fibers (material is combination of two dif-ferent phases – the plastic matrix and wood flour, what is material with properties of plastic with wood appearance). Measuring is realized by roughness testers, where have to be consider about inhomogeneity of WPC material (70 % of wood fill and 30 % of HDPE matrix). From the result, the surface roughness is mostly influenced by feed rate.
