Project: Accessibility and reactivity of natural fibres for materials with improved mechanical and physical performance

project duration
01-AUG-03 – 30-APR-06
abstract
For the production of composite materials, the surface of natural fibres is modified aiming at improved interfacial adhesion and strength transfer to the polymer matrix. Modified fibres are used for the production of test specimens for testing mechanical and physical properties, as wel as the resistance towards biodegradation and weathering.
