Saccharification of Brazilian sisal pulp: evaluating the impact of mercerization on non-hydrolyzed pulp and hydrolysis products
Cultivation of sisal, a plant with a short growth cycle, is highly productive in Brazil. This work is part of extensive research in which sisal is valued. In these studies, sisal fibers are used in the preparation of ...
Adding value to the Brazilian sisal: acid hydrolysis of its pulp seeking production of sugars and materials
The present work is inserted into the broad context of the upgrading of lignocellulosic fibers. Sisal was chosen in the present study because more than 50% of the world's sisal is cultivated in Brazil, it has a short life ...
Sisal organosolv pulp as reinforcement for cement based composites
(ABM, ABC, ABPol, 2009)
The present work describes non-conventional sisal (Agave sisalana) chemical (organosolv) pulp from residues of cordage as reinforcement to cement based materials. Sisal organosolv pulp was produced in a 1:1 ethanol/water ...
Potencial papelero de la fibra de sisal (Agave sisalana).

Effect of accelerated carbonation on cementitious roofing tiles reinforced with lignocellulosic fibre
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2010)
The present work evaluated the effects of accelerated carbonation on mechanical and physical characteristics of cementitious roofing tiles reinforced with vegetable fibre. The maximum load and toughness of the tiles have ...
Supercritical carbonation treatment on extruded fibre-cement reinforced with vegetable fibres
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-02-01)
The objective of this research was to evaluate the effects of supercritical carbonation treatment for 2 h on the main hydrated phases of the cement matrix (calcium hydroxide and calcium silicate hydrate) and durability of ...
Hybrid Reinforcement of Sisal and Polypropylene Fibers in Cement-Based Composites
(ASCE-AMER SOC CIVIL ENGINEERS, 2011)
Several studies using vegetable fibers as the exclusive reinforcement in fiber-cement composites have shown acceptable mechanical performance at the first ages. However, after the exposure to accelerated aging tests, these ...
Eucalyptus kraft pulp fibers as an alternative reinforcement of silicone composites. II. Thermal, morphological, and mechanical properties of the composites
(John Wiley & Sons IncHobokenEUA, 2003)
Thermal performance of sisal fiber-cement roofing tiles for rural constructions
(São Paulo - Escola Superior de Agricultura "Luiz de Queiroz", 2011)
Roofing provides the main protection against direct solar radiation in animal housing. Appropriate thermal properties of roofing materials tend to improve the thermal comfort in the inner ambient. Nonasbestos fiber-cement ...
