Influence of fibre surface treatments and textile process on the properties of natural composites
Nag, Ranajit Kumar and UNSPECIFIED (2015) Influence of fibre surface treatments and textile process on the properties of natural composites. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The objective of this work is to understand the influence of fibre surface treatment as well as yarn twist on the tensile properties of unidirectional (UD) jute polyester composites. Jute and polyester are chosen in this work as both are cheap. As received jute yarn, physical and chemical surface treated jute yarn and raw jute fibre are used to manufacture UD composites. Physical surface treatment includes removing yarn hairs, sizing by hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC), water treatment, sizing by cellulose nano-particle (CNP) and chemical treatment includes mercerisation with and without applying tension.
