The efficiency of all composite materials depends on the fiber-matrix interface and its ability to transfer stress from the matrix to the fiber. Radiation treatment is a possible way to bind together the main components of the composite. In our earlier work we applied acrylic oligomer-treated fibers irradiated with low energy electron beam to reinforce recycled polypropylene. In the present work the interaction between the matrix and fibers - PAN and glass fibers - was investigated by ESCA (Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis). On the other hand, the conventional way of compatibilization - the effect of using maleic anhydride grafted PP as a coupling agent - was examined in flax fiber-PP composites.
