ABSTRACTSugar palm fiber (SPF) as one of the attractive natural fibers to reinforce matrix is gaining attention. This is largely due to its similar properties when compared with other established natural fibers. The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate as a treatment chemical for SPF in comparison with established alkaline treatment. Both treated and untreated fibers were characterized and it was found that the treated fiber shows an increase in crystallini...

Abstract Fiber reinforced plastic composites replace wood and metals due to their light weight, high strength to weight ratio, noncorrosive nature and stiffness. Bio based fibers are used in place of petroleum based fibers because of environmental concerns. Natural fibers exhibit low specific strength and light density, processing and recycling are simple. New materials are being developed and grow every day. The high strength, light weight and biodegradability of natural fiber composites such a...

Abstract Application of natural fibre reinforced polymer composites (NFPC) in transportation diligences has become inexorable due to light weight, superior properties, less cost of production and suitability to many products. But the main disadvantages of employing these fibers are their poor dimensional stability and high hydrophilic nature. Interfacial bonding between the fiber and matrix plays a vital role in deciding the mechanical characteristics of composites. Various chemical cures are ap...

Abstract Developing sustainable products from renewable materials represents a large dispute in the last few years. Bio-fibers obtained by retting process from plants are receiving more attention from material experts owing to their sustainability, bio degradability, renewability and recyclability nature. The physical and mechanical properties of natural fibers depend on the cultivation method, environmental condition, extraction method and microfibrillar angle. Plant fibers are separated either...
