Hybrid Vegetable/Glass Fiber Composites
There is an ever-growing worldwide interest in the use of lignocellulosic fibers as reinforcement in either thermoset (mainly unsaturated polyester) or thermoplastic (mainly polyolefins) composites. However, the wider use ...
Evaluation of mechanical, physical and thermal performance of cement-based tiles reinforced with vegetable fibers
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2008)
The objective of this work was to analyze mechanical, physical and thermal performance of roofing tiles produced with several formulations of cement-based matrices reinforced with sisal and eucalyptus fibers. The physical ...
Scanning electron microscopy study of raw and chemically modified sisal fibers
(John Wiley & Sons IncHobokenEUA, 2004)
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 ...
Polyolefins Reinforced with Short Vegetal Fibers: Sisal vs. Curaua
(Assoc Brasil PolimerosSao CarlosBrasil, 2011)
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 ...
Biocomposite Of A Multilayer Film Scrap And Curaua Fibers: Preparation And Environmental Degradation
(Sage Publications LTDLondon, 2017)
Thermoset matrix reinforced with sisal fibers: Effect of the cure cycle on the properties of the biobased composite
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009)
Thermoset phenolic composites reinforced with sisal fibers were prepared to optimize the cure step. In the present study, processing parameters such as pressure, temperature, and time interval were varied to control the ...
Analysis of curaua/glass hybrid interlayer laminates
(Sage Publications Ltd, 2014-03-01)
This study compares the mechanical properties of curaua, glass and hybrid curaua/glass laminates evaluated experimentally with those obtained theoretically using commercial software for composites. Hybrids laminates were ...
