Paper Title:
Lotus Fiber Production and its Property
  Abstract

Lotus fiber is produced from lotus stalks with pool dipping,sodium hydroxide boil degum and hydrogen peroxide bleach methods. The spinning properties of specific gravity, linear density, relative strength, relative strength variation coefficient and break elongation were tested. The components and structure of the lotus fiber have been analyzed and indicated with chemical, infrared spectroscopy (IR), X-ray diffractometer (X-RD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The results show that the lotus fiber has similar components, properties and spinning performance with jute and belongs to natural cellulose fiber.
