Fabrication & Tribological Behaviour Of Feather Reinforced Polymer Composites

Nayak, Nadia Bihari (2010) Fabrication & Tribological Behaviour Of Feather Reinforced Polymer Composites. MTech by Research thesis.



Natural fibers have recently attracted the attention of scientists and technologists because of the advantages that these fibers provide over conventional reinforcement materials, and for which the development of natural fibers composites has been a subject of interest for the past few years. These natural fibers are low-cost fibers with low density and high specific properties. These are biodegradable and non-abrasive, unlike other reinforcing fibers. However, certain drawbacks such as incompatibility with the hydrophobic polymer matrix, the tendency to form aggregates during processing and poor resistance to moisture greatly reduce the potential of natural fibers to be used as reinforcement in polymer matrices.
