The Future Quality of Natural Fibre – Matrix for Green Composites: An Environmental Credential


Objectives: The use of green composite on this study has faced poor compatibility of natural fibre to the matrix. Fibre surface modification is done to enhanced adhesion of epoxidized bio-resin vegetables oil based onto bamboo fibre. Methods: Alkylation is the method was used to modify fiber surface by soaking the bamboo fiber into NaOH solutions under designated varied of concentration and time. The goals are to get rough surface to enhanced adhesion and improved mechanical strength of green composite. Findings:The optimum concentration of alkylation to fibre volume fraction are complementary influenced the green composite mechanical properties. Applications: The products obtain can be used in wide ranging of applications. The low cost of production may have great opportunity for developing countries.
