Paper Title:
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) Analysis of Abaca Fibre (Musa Textile Nee) Reinforced High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) Composites
  Abstract

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was used to study the thermal behaviour of abaca fibre reinforced high impact polystyrene (HIPS) composites. Thermal analysis is based upon the detection of changes in the heat content (enthalpy) and the glass transition temperature (Tg) of optimum condition of abaca fibre reinforced HIPS composites. In this research, glass transitions temperature (Tg) of neat HIPS occurred below the Tg of optimum condition of composites as the temperature of an amorphous state. The endothermic peak of composites was in to range 430-435°C including neat HIPS and it observed that enthalpy of abaca fibre reinforced HIPS composites yielded below the neat HIPS 748.79 J/g.
