Biodegradable polymeric composites using natural fibers have been investigated aiming to mitigate environmental impacts. In this paper, polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) composites obtained using random mats of sisal and coconut fibers by compression molding in a hydraulic press, and the fiber content varied between 10% and 15% relative to the weight of the polymer. Thermal analyses were performed such as Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA). Flexural and tensile ...
