  • Effect of Fiber surface treatment and Fiber loading on the properties of Bagasse Fiber–reinforced unsaturated polyester composites
    Composites Science and Technology, 2008
    Co-Authors: Vannaladsaysy Vilay, M Mariatti, R. Mat Taib, Mitsugu Todo

    Abstract:

    Abstract Bagasse Fiber is a residue of a sugarcane milling process. In this research, Bagasse Fiber has been used as reinforcing component for unsaturated polyester resin (USP) to open up further possibilities in waste management. The chemical treatments using sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and acrylic acid (AA) were carried out to modify the Fiber properties. The effect of different Fiber treatment and the Fiber content on the composite properties were investigated. At different Fiber loadings, AA treated Fiber composites shows better mechanical properties compared to those of NaOH treated Fiber composites. SEM investigations show that the surface modifications improve the Fiber–matrix interaction. Moreover, the storage modulus of dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) indicated that NaOH and AA treated Fibers based composites enhance the storage modulus of the composites. From water absorption study, it was observed that the treated Fiber composites show lower water absorption properties compared to those of untreated Fiber based composites.

  • Weibull Analysis to Characterize the Diameter Dependence of Tensile Strength in Sugarcane Bagasse Fibers
    Materials Science Forum, 2020
    Co-Authors: Verônica Scarpini Candido, Michel Picanço Oliveira, Raissa De Almeida Gouvêa, Amanda Luiza Bezerra S. Martins, Sergio Neves Monteiro

    Abstract:

    Fibers obtained from de sugarcane Bagasse are being investigated as possible engineering materials. Their application as reinforcement of polymer composites is of interest due not only to environmental benefits associated with a waste recycling but also to their biodegradable and renewable characterisitics. Since it is known that many lignocellulosic Fibers present a tensile strength inverse dependence with the diameter, this possibility was investigated on Bagasse Fibers. By means of the Weibull analysis, it was found that the thinner the Bagasse Fiber, the greater the strength. Fracture observation of Bagasse Fibers by scanning electron microscopy, indicated possible mechanisms related to this inverse correlation.

  • Characterization of Epoxy Matrix Composites Incorporated with Sugarcane Bagasse Fibers
    Materials Science Forum, 2020
    Co-Authors: Amanda Luiza Bezerra S. Martins, Michel Picanço Oliveira, Verônica Scarpini Candido, Raissa De Almeida Gouvêa, Sergio Neves Monteiro

    Abstract:

    Sugarcane Bagasse is a typical waste generated in the production of sugarcane and ethanol. This agro-industrial waste is commonly used as fuel in the industry boiler for the steam and energy generation. However, part of the Bagasse waste is disposed and may pollute the environment. The Fibers extracted from the sugarcane Bagasse have been considered as addition to polymeric composites. In the present work epoxy composites incorporated with 30% in volume of continuous sugarcane Bagasse Fibers were evaluated in terms of their mechanical properties. As compared to the neat epoxy, the Bagasse Fiber displayed an increase in elastic modulus but a decrease in strength and ductility. The analysis of the composite microstructure by scanning electron microscopy revealed flaws and pores that could justify these preliminary obtained results.

  • thermal behavior of polyester composites reinforced with green sugarcane Bagasse Fiber
    JOM, 2018
    Co-Authors: Verônica Scarpini Candido, Alisson Clay Rios Da Silva, Sergio Neves Monteiro

    Abstract:

    Natural Fibers such as those from sugarcane Bagasse may be obtained as industrial waste products. These Fibers have recently been investigated as low-cost reinforcements in composites for engineering applications, some of which may require exposure to temperatures above ambient. In the present work, Fibers extracted from sugarcane Bagasse were used at up to 30 vol.% as reinforcement in polyester-matrix composites. The thermal behavior of these composites was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and derivative thermogravimetry (DTG) as well as dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). TGA/DTG results indicated similar limits of thermal stability at about 200°C for the neat polyester and the Bagasse Fiber composites. The thermal degradation peak at around 370°C was also similar, being attributed mainly to polyester. DSC analysis revealed that Bagasse Fiber incorporation caused only a minor change in the glass-transition temperature. On the contrary, DMA parameters revealed notable changes attributed to effect of the Bagasse Fibers on the viscous stiffness and damping capacity of the polyester.
