Article Preview

Surfaces of jute fiber needled mats were treated by alkali, potassium permanganate and A-151 silane coupling respectively, and those reinforced vinyl resin composites were made by VARTM method . The changes of the surface energy of the jute fiber mats were analyzed basing on the dynamic contact angle, and the surface of the jute fiber and the interface morphology of the composites were observed by SEM. The results showed that interface compatibility and the comprehensive properties of the composites were improved evidently, because the surface energy of the jute fiber was lowered and the surface micro-structures of the fiber were changed. Especially, the tensile strength and flexural strength of the composites treated by A-151 silane coupling increased by 63.08% and 94.79% respectively.
