    Fabrication and Testing of Pure and NaOH Treated Sisal Fibre Reinforced Bio-Composite

    Author(s): Nandan Kumar GM and Kingsly Jasper MNandan Kumar GM and Kingsly Jasper M

    Natural fibres are now widely used for reinforcements of materials as they are a reliable resource and the cost is also less. One of the significant reasons of using natural fibres as reinforcements instead of polymers or other plastics is that they are degradable and don’t cause any harm to the environment. This article is particularly centered on polymer matrix composites made of Sisal fibre which was accessible locally and finding the composite’s mechanical property (tensile strength). A number of test samples of sisal fibre composite are fabricated by ASTM standards and made to undergo tensile tests in order to obtain the desired properties. In the later part of the work a comparison between the mechanical properties of a non-treated pure Sisal fibre composite and a NaOH treated Sisal fibre composite is carried out to check for any enhancements in the properties...
