The Mechanical Characteristics of Straw/poly(Lactic Acid) Composite Materials

Abstract:

Article Preview

To consider the effective utilization of plastics and agricultural wastes, rice straw fibre was extracted from agricultural wastes, and then composited with polylactic acid(PLA). The thermal stability of straw/poly(lactic acid)(straw/PLA) composites decreased (Thermogravimetric Analysis, TGA). Tensile strength, fracture strain and sharply impact strength of straw/PLA were decreased with the increase of filler content and grain size of straw. Yong’s modulus were increased as the increasing of straw content.
