Fabrication of Decorative Fluorescent Composite Material

Mahato, Subham (2011) Fabrication of Decorative Fluorescent Composite Material. MSc thesis.



Decorative Composites are the composite materials having artistic characteristics in addition to functional characteristics. It is highly possible that the decorative composites may produce an entire new field on the fibrous composite industry. Natural fiber reinforced composite is gaining attention and considered as an eco-friendly material. Generally cellulosic fibers are used to reinforce the composites. In this paper, we proposed a method for producing artistic composite from artistic fabric by using sisal fiber. In order to expand applications of the fiber reinforced composite, we performed the hand lay-up method for the preparation of mold with the help of themocoul. Then using epoxy resin as matrix we prepared a decorative composite with sisal fiber as reinforced material. To make it more attractive, fluorescent materials have been added which disturbed the curing property of epoxy resin and took a lot more time. But finally we got decorative fluorescent composite materials with desired shape.
