Paper Title:
Tensile and Impact Properties of Sugarcane Bagasse/Poly(vinyl Chloride) Composites
  Abstract

Sugarcane bagasse is divided into two main components, pith and rind, with “pith” representing the inner part of the sugarcane bagasse and “rind” as the outer part. In this study, the tensile and impact properties of untreated pith/ poly(vinyl chloride) composites were compared to that of untreated rind composites using the same matrix with variation of fibre content. It was observed that the tensile strength and modulus of rind/PVC composites are higher than the unfilled PVC at composite fibre contents of 30% and 40%. Additionally, the rind composites exhibited superior strength and stiffness in comparison with the pith composites.
