Surface Modification of Cornstalk Fiber and Properties of Cornstalk Fiber/Gypsum Composites
Cornstalk fibers were modified with surface modification and the properties of cornstalk fiber/gypsum composites was studied. The results showed that mechanical properties of cornstalk fiber/gypsum composites were enhanced by adding unmodified cornstalk fibers, but composites waterproof performance was decreased greatly. Through surface modification on cornstalk fibers, composites mechanical properties were further enhanced, and composites waterproof performance was improved obviously. The mechanism of surface modification was discussed, and the model of interfacial zone between modified cornstalk fiber and gypsum matrix was proposed.
