Kolkata, August 2 ( ANI ): President Pranab Mukherjee inaugurated the International Conference on Natural Fibres
organized by the National Institute of Research on Jute and Allied Fibre Technology at Kolkata on Friday.
This is due to the fact that the specific properties of them are comparable and the natural fibre
has the opportunity to replace glass fibre [12,11].
The Joint Labs in Natural Fibre
Composites and Large Format Machining will help to build the foundation of a robust track record in the thematic areas of practical industrial significance, advancing research and honing the skills of R&D manpower for the local manufacturing industry.
Knowledge of mechanical properties on both directions of composite materials reinforced with natural fibre
fabrics is very useful to designers, to make advanced structures, with applications to interior automotive components and furniture with complex shapes.
The emphasis so far has been on the reception of natural fibre
compounds by automotive companies--an attractive market with, for instance, Peugeot Citroen in France declaring a target of eventually using only natural fibres
in plastics compounds.
In this year's International Year of Natural Fibres
, the event pulled in crowds of enthusiasts for a two-in-one festival which also included the Mid Wales Mouthful food festival.
Growing awareness of environmental issues has led to increasing demand for goods produced from natural products, including natural fibres
This main objective of this paper is to investigate the mechanical properties of a series of natural fibre
reinforced polymer composites, where the parameters under study are type of natural fibres
(KE, EFB) and synthetic E-glass fibre, type of matrix materials (renewable thermoplastic PLA, synthetic thermoplastic PS and thermoset EP resins) and the fibre-matrix volume fraction.
Using an artificial gut, they tested the effectiveness of more than 60 different natural fibres
by measuring the amount of fat that was digested and absorbed with each treatment.
A PERMANENT exhibition for woollen and natural fibre
products from Wales and the Marches opened this weekend.
The two innovative polymers, natural fibre
acrylic and natural fibre
polypropylene, have been developed at Lear's Manufacturing Operation Division's development center in Ebersberg, Germany, where materials development focuses on vehicle safety and weight reduction.
