Paper Title:
Development and Evaluation of Mechanical Properties for Kenaf Fibers/PLA Composites
  Abstract

A new type of composite used biodegradable resins and natural fibers is now being developed and this new type of composites is designated as a green composite. This paper presents a fabrication method and mechanical properties of the green composite used Kenaf fibers as the reinforcement and PLA as the matrix. In order to obtain the higher tensile strength, various kind of surface treatments were executed on the Kenaf fiber and some parameters were changed during the process of fabrication. Then, these effects on the strength of green composite are also reported.
