Abstract

Most modern technologies coping with ecological aspects have grabbed the sprit of current age. Conservation of raw materials, for instance natural fibres has imposed composite industry to explore and monitor eco-friendly components. A vigorous research in providing the similar performance as their synthetic counter paths are actively in progress where in surrogate reinforcement and resign systems that are environmentally friendly are proposed. The aim of this paper is to study the potential of using borassus flabellifer fibre as reinforcement in polymeric materials. Borassus flabellifer fibre is chemically treated with 5% NaOH solution has been incorporated in a polyester resin matrix at different volume fractions of fibres. Both chemically treated and untreated fibre was utilized and five different fibre volume fractions were used during composite manufacturing. Mechanical tests such as tensile, flexural and impact were conducted. The effect of change in volume fraction on the mechanical properties of the composite is studied for both chemically treated and untreated borassus flabellifer fibre composites. It is found that chemically treated fibre composites have good mechanical properties compared to untreated fibre composites.

Key Words

Borassus flabellifer fibre, Polyester resin, Mechanical properties, Fibre volume fraction.
