Corrigendum to “Characterization of Rice Husk Fiber-Reinforced Polyvinyl Chloride Composites under Accelerated Simulated Soil Conditions”
In the article titled “Characterization of Rice Husk Fiber-Reinforced Polyvinyl Chloride Composites under Accelerated Simulated Soil Conditions” , the authors identified an error in the reported cut-off period, which should be corrected from 7 days to 30 days. Additionally, an error occurred in the process of exporting and drawing the infrared data, which led to an error in the 14-day aging time curve of Figure 3. The corrected Figure 3 is shown below.
The authors repeated the experiment to verify the conclusion, and the results are included in the supplementary materials.
A related article was not cited in the original publication. Article  used orthogonal experiments to determine the soil aging conditions and studied the performance changes before and after aging of rice husks (100 meshes) and PVC (100 meshes) composites. Article  focused on the optimization of rice husk/PVC formulations.
Since the second paper was an extension of the first paper, the authors compared the data from  to prove the conclusions. In article , the formula of MSRC was a particle size ratio of mixed-particle-size fibers of 80 : 120, mass ratio of mixed-particle-size fibers of 7 : 3, and mass ratio of wood-to-plastic of 4 : 6. The microstructure of RHRC (0 day and 21 days) shown in Figures 3(a) and 3(b) of article  corresponds to Figures 2(a) and 2(b) in article .
