The present work deals with the influence of wood dust namely Rosewood and Padauk in the jute fiber-based epoxy composites. The work involves the fabrication of four different laminates of jute-epoxy composites using hand layup process with varying proportions of Rosewood and Padauk wood dust fillers compared with the composite in the absence of filler. The characterization of the mechanical and thermal properties was carried out by tensile, compression, flexural, shore D hardness, impact and th...

Abstract In the current study, a series of hybrid composite films were prepared from cornhusk fiber (CHF) and sugar palm fiber (SPF) through a solution casting technique, using cornstarch (CS) as matrix and fructose as a plasticizer. SPF at 2%, 4%, 6%, and 8% (w/w dry starch) concentrations was loaded into CS/CH composites with 8% CHF and 25% fructose. The physical, morphological, thermal, tensile, and barrier characteristics of the final product were evaluated. From the findings, there was a ma...

This review summarizes the ongoing research activities on morphological changes being brought about by subjecting the natural cellulosic fibers to various chemical treatments. Most of the natural fibers being used as reinforcements in poly meric resins to form the polymer matrix composites are considered. The natural fibers contain an abundant number of polar hydroxyl groups and most of these hydroxyl groups are removed or modified in the cellulosic fibers when chemical treatments such as alkali...

Agro-industrial by-products are an alternative potential source to replace synthetic fibers /filler materials. Pistachio (Pistacia vera) nut processing industries producing Pistacia vera nutshell (PVNS) as waste in large quantity. The nutshells are characterized for the first time towards their Physico-chemical properties like particle size, structural, morphological, elemental, thermal and surface analysis. The thermal stability and degradation temperature of PVNS particles are 240.6 and 274.2 ...

Abstract Recently, agriculture residue such as oil palm empty fruit bunch (OPEFB) and sugarcane bagasse (SCB) fiber have been attracting attention to a researcher as a high potential reinforcement material for composite material in building sector. Agriculture biomass are biodegradable, sustainable, low cost and lightweight materials for composite industries. In this paper, OPEFB and SCB fiber used as filler in different ratio to fabricate hybrid composites by hand lay-up technique while maintai...

Abstract Bagasse ash (BGA) filled bio-composite were developed with the reinforced hybrid natural fibres sisal, flax, banana and kenaf to improve mechanical and thermal properties. The vacuum bag assisted resin transfer method is used to develop hybrid natural fibres reinforced epoxy composites in combination of banana/flax (HBF), banana/kenaf (HBK), sisal/flax (HSF), and sisal/kenaf (HSK). A ball milled BGA of size 350 nm with a combination of 1, 3 and 5 wt% were incorporated in bio-composites ...

Natural fiber reinforced composite materials were manufactured by reinforcing Grewia Serrulata with unsaturated polyester matrix material. To improve the adhesion between fiber/matrix interphase; fibers were treated with Silane, Acetylation and Potassium Permanganate solutions. Partially biodegradable composite materials were prepared using hand lay-up technique. Toughness and hardness of the materials were investigated according to ASTM standards. Acetylation and Silane treatment of Grewia Serr...

Abstract Ageing behavior is one of the crucial factor for selection of material by designers and engineers, mainly for structural applications. Investigation of the ageing effect on biocomposites would supplement current knowledge and may help in encouraging their uses in real life applications. The current experimental investigation aims to determine the variation in various properties of Bagasse fibers reinforced Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) biocomposites during accelerated thermal ageing. Specimens...

In this work, sugarcane bagasse fiber, a waste product of agroindustry, was added to mortar mixes at different proportions looking to seal porosities so as to improve the resistance of concrete to carbonation and to improve its mechanical properties. To evaluate the behavior of bagasse fibers in the alkaline media typical of mortars, bagasse fibers were subjected to solutions with alkaline pH values, and their chemical structure and morphological behavior was evaluated using FTIR (Fourier transf...
