Study on Properties of Crops Fiber/Gypsum Composites
This work aims to evaluate the effect of cotton stalk fibers with styrene acrylic emulsion treatment, slag and ordinary Portland cement on the properties of crops fiber/gypsum composites. The results show that crops fibers with surface treatment, slag and ordinary Portland cement can increase the bending strength and improve the water-proof property of crops fiber/gypsum composites obviously. The fracture surface of crops fiber/gypsum composites were observed by SEM, and the action mechanism of the crops fibers, slag and ordinary Portland cement on crops fiber/gypsum composites were discussed.
