The effects of moisture, heat, fire, and UV radiation on the properties of plant fiber-polymer composites are discussed in this chapter. Chemical treatments and additives such as fibre treatments, fire retardants, and stabilisers are also mentioned in relation to UV radiation. The strength of a plant fiber-polymer composite is obtained by optimum fibre content, according to the analysis, but the presence of fibre allows the composite to deteriorate due to moisture. Fiber treatments that increase the fiber-matrix interface improve composite … Continue reading “Degradation of Plant Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites”
