Abstract

Studies on structure and properties of natural vegetable fibers show that composites made of those fibers and syntethic polymers combine good mechanical properties with a low specific mass. The high level of moisture absorption by the fiber, and the poor wettability by the syntethics leads to debonding with age. To produce composites with high mechanical properties a surface modification of the fibers is necessary. In our composite structures we used cotton, hemp and flax as a reinforcement in polypropylene matrix. Increasing the fiber content in the composite we can improve the mechanical properties except of the impact strength. By using efficient coupling agent, the mechanical properties further increase.
