The Mechanical Properties of Bamboo/PLA Composites Made by Biaxial Weft Knitted Fabrics
Bamboo fiber reinforced polylactic acid composite is a kind of green composite materials with excellent performance, which is environmental safe and degradable in natural environment. Literature regarding the characteristics of reinforcement and matrix, pretreatment methods, preparation technology and biodegradable nature of the bamboo/ polylactic acid composite was reviewed and a particular bamoo/ polylactic acid composite made by biaxial weft knitted fabrics was developed. The composite demonstrated excellent tensile and flexural performance. In addition, the influence of the linear density of the binder yarns on the mechanical properties of this composite was insignificant.
