Properties Research of Cotton Fiber Reinforced Gypsum Based Composites


Article Preview

Cotton fibers and gypsum were taken as the raw materials to manufacture cotton fiber reinforced gypsum based composites. Optimum length and dosage of cotton fiber and mixing method were confirmed in the experiments. The effect of cotton fiber on mechanical properties and waterproof properties of composites were studied. The reinforcement mechanism of cotton fibers on composites was discussed.
