Flexural behavior of Sisal/Castor oil-Based Polyurethane and Sisal/Phenolic Composites
(ABM, ABC, ABPol, 2012-04-01)
Natural fibers used as reinforcement of polymeric composites are interesting research subjects in polymer technology. Nowadays, these materials are being considered as a way to reinforce timber structures improvement. ...
Sisal cellulose acetates obtained from heterogeneous reactions
(BUDAPEST UNIV TECHNOL & ECON, 2008)
In the present work, cellulose obtained from sisal, which is a source of rapid growth, was used. Cellulose acetates were produced in heterogeneous medium, using acetic anhydride as esterifying agent and iodine as catalyst, ...
Efeito do tratamento das fibras nas propriedades do biocompósito de amido termoplástico/policaprolactona/sisal
(Associação Brasileira de Polímeros, 2011-01-01)
Fibras de sisal com quatro tratamentos, a saber: fibra lavada com água, lavada com cicloexano/etanol, tratamento alcalino (NaOH) e tratamento com peróxido alcalino (branqueamento), foram incorporadas na blenda amido ...
GROWTH AND MORTALITY OF LAGODON RHOMBOIDES (PISCES: SPARIDAE) IN A TROPICAL COASTAL LAGOON IN NORTHWESTERN YUCATAN, MEXICO
(Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica, EUNA, 2012)
Whiskers de fibra de sisal obtidos sob diferentes condições de hidrólise ácida: efeito do tempo e da temperatura de extração.
(Polímeros, São Carlos, v. 21., n. 4, p. 281-285, 2011., 2013)
Biodegradation of Coir and Sisal Applied in the Automotive Industry
(Springer/plenum Publishers, 2011-09-01)
This paper discusses the results of biodegradability tests of natural fibers used by the automotive industry, namely: coir, coir with latex, and sisal. The biodegradation of coir, coir with latex, and of sisal fibers was ...
Toughening of wood particle composites-effects of sisal fibers
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2006-08)
Sisal fibers were added to wood particle composites to enhance their toughness. The selected matrix was a commercial styrene diluted unsaturated polyester thermoset resin. Fracture tests were carried out using single-edge ...
Polyolefins Reinforced with Short Vegetal Fibers: Sisal vs. Curaua
(Assoc Brasil PolimerosSao CarlosBrasil, 2011)
Morphological, mechanical properties and biodegradability of biocomposite thermoplastic starch and polycaprolactone reinforced with sisal fibers
(Sage Publications Ltd, 2012-04-01)
The incorporation of fibers as reinforcements in polymer composites has increased due to their renewability, low cost and biodegradability. In this study, sisal fibers were added to a polymer matrix of thermoplastic starch ...
Thermal and mechanical behaviour of sisal/phenolic composites
(Elsevier B.V., 2012-10-01)
This research proposes the development of polymeric composites reinforced with natural fibres to become stronger the damaged timber structures and proposes thermal and mechanical characterization of these composites. Fibres ...
