Natural fiber suspensions in thermoplastic polymers. I. analysis of fiber damage during processing
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2007-02)
The final properties of the composites materials are strongly dependent on the residual aspect ratio, orientation, and distribution of the fibers, which are determined by the processing conditions. Present work is a ...
Curaua fibers - The queen of the fibers
Nowadays, the usage of natural resources is under worldwide growing interest. From this perspective, different renewable sources have been studied to replace man-made polymers or even improve the properties of current ...
Modification and Characterization of Hemp and Sisal Fibers
(Taylor & Francis IncPhiladelphiaEUA, 2014)
Characterization of curaua fiber
This paper describes the chemical, thermal and thermomechanical characterization of curaua fiber. The research of the thermal and thermomechanical properties of natural fibers is of major interest, considering their ...
Natural fiber reinforced unsaturated polyester composites - An approach on compression molding
This work has been performed at Tapetes Sao Carlos-Brazil with the cooperation of the DaimlerChrysler Research Center Team in Ulm - Germany. The objective of the present paper is to report the results obtained with natural ...
Processing of plant fiber composites by liquid molding techniques: an overview
Lately, researchers around the world have developed effective chemical and physical treatments on plant fibers to improve their compatibility with polymeric matrices. In addition, the need of high performance fabrics ...
Key differences on the compaction response of natural and glass fiber preforms in liquid composite molding
(Sage Publications, 2013-10)
In the present work, the effects of fiber structure and fluid absorption on the compaction behavior of jute woven fabrics and sisal mats were analyzed and compared with the response of glass fiber mats. It was found that ...
