Abstract

Mechanical properties of hemp fiber reinforced polypropylene were investigated. Hemp fibers were carded together with polypropylene fibers, and needle punched. Composites were prepared by hot pressing of the PP/hemp mats. Hemp content was varied between 0 and 50 % by weight, in 10% steps. A treatment with two different maleic anhydride grafted polypropylenes was applied in order to increase the fiber/matrix surface adhesion. Tensile, three-point bending and Charpy tests were carried out on the treated and untreated composites.
