Comparative Study on Structure and Thermal Properties of Sisal Fiber and Lotus Petiole Fiber
In this study, sisal fiber and lotus petiole fiber were compared in structure and properties. SEM photos showed that the sisal fiber surface was rough, but lotus petiole fiber was smooth. The thermal properties of lotus petiole fiber and sisal fiber were studied with TG, the results shown that the law of degradation of the two fibers is similar. FT-IR measurement could confirm that the composition of the two fibers was almost the same.
