Thermo-Mechanical Treatment to Improve Properties of Sisal Fibres for Composites

Abstract:

Article Preview

The cross section variation, mechanical properties and moisture absorption of vegetable sisal fibres compressed at temperatures of 120, 160 and 200 °C were determined and compared with values obtained in non-compressed fibres. The thermo-mechanical treatment carried out resulted in a relevant increasing of fibre stiffness (elastic modulus) and decreasing of fibre moisture absorption.
