ROSARIO, Francisco et al. Virgin and recycled polypropylene composites reinforced with sisal by-product. Polímeros [online]. 2011, vol.21, n.2, pp.90-97.  Epub 29-Abr-2011. ISSN 0104-1428.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0104-14282011005000021.

The mechanical and thermal properties of virgin and recycled polypropylene composites reinforced with 30% by mass of residual sisal fibers were studied, in addition to an analysis of the extrusion process and morphology of the polymeric matrix. Tensile strength, Young's modulus, elongation at break, and impact energy were determined. The samples were also characterized by SEM, DMTA and TG analyses. Elongation at break of the composites presented a significant decrease, while the tensile strength was not affected significantly by addition of sisal fibers. A significant increase was observed in the tension of rupture and in the impact energy of the composite reinforced with sisal fiber. The thermal analyses indicated secondary interactions, such as polar interactions, between the fibers and the matrix, consistent with the mechanical behavior of the composites. The glass transition temperature has not changed after fiber addition.

Palavras-chave : Sisal by-product; extrusion; compatibility; mechanical properties; thermal properties.
