VIII - Reed lignocellulosic thermoplastic composite

R.E. Abou-Zeid, N.A. El-Wakil, Y. Fahmy, A. Dufresne

VIII - 1 - Objective

Untreated and benzylated reed fibers were used as reinforcing fillers in thermoplastic composites. Lignocellulosic fibers are a new generation of fillers, which are favored due to their capacity of making composites more environmentally friendly.

Two levels of reinforcement were studied, 30 and 40%. They were used to fill polypropylene (PP), high density polyethylene (HDPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE) and polystyrene (PS). The presence of fibers decreases the modulus and strength of the composites but benzylated reed fibers improve these properties.
