The aim of this paper is to obtain and study the properties of wood waste reinforced elastomer composites with various fibre contents (10-50 wt%). The composite is based on chloroprene rubber, and added post-consumer recycled wood particles, with dimensions of 500 nm eco-reinforcing material, and active fillers, plasticizers, vulcanizing agents, antioxidants. In order to enhance the compatibility and their level of interaction, the wood waste was finely ground (cryogenic mill) and functionalized with potassium oleate. Wood waste acts as a filling material which leads to the biodegradability of the composite and the decrease in density. Tensile, tear strength, elasticity, hardness, abrasion resistance, melt flow index and morphological study (FT-IR) of those composites were examined in order to determine the viability in various applications domains.
