Trial-Preparation of RSS Based Composite Containing GF


Article Preview

In order to explore the enhancing method of rice straw based composites, glass fiber (GF) was introduced into the preparation of composites of poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and rice straw slice (RSS). The tensile performances and hardness of composites were characterized. Results showed that GF had obvious enhancing role on PVA/RSS composites. The tensile strength of the composites first increased and then decreased with increasing GF amount. When the mass ratio of RSS, PVA and GF was 20:15:7, the composite reached its maximum strength of 23.45 MPa, which increased by 1.49 times compared to the composites without GF. The strength at tensile break of composites increased with the increase of GF amount. The maximum of strength at tensile break was 23.12 MPa when GF amount was 9 g. The stretch of composites first increased and then decreased with increasing GF amount. The addition of GF had no effect on the hardness of composites.
