Abstract

Jute, an eco-friendly and affordable fiber grown profusely in India, possess unique combination of properties suited for the manufacture of non-textile products. However, its contribution for technical applications is limited at present. In this research, an effort has been made to investigate the physical and morphological properties of jute fiber when incorporated in epoxy matrix with a view to widen the share of jute fibers for engineered applications. Composite specimens containing nonwoven jute mat and alkali treated short jute fibers with different weight percentages (1, 2 wt%) were made using epoxy resin. The water absorption, thickness swelling (TS) and morphology [scanning electron microscopy (SEM)] tests of the bio composites were performed. As the fiber fraction ratio was increased the values for water absorption (WA) and thickness swell (TS) were found to be increased. The samples reinforced with 2 wt. percent fiber fractions showed maximum WA and TS in both water environments.
