The Influence of Matrix Banana Stem Fiber Volume Fraction Recycled Polypropylene (RPP) toward Bending Test
Journal of Mechanical Science and Engineering
Natural fiber was proof to be a strong material capable to substitute synthetic fiber. Natural fiber from banana stem having tensile strength of 68.44 MPa with average diameter of 0.698 mm maybe used as reinforcement for polymer composite materials. In a composite material of recycle polypropylene (RPP) matrix reinforced by fiber of banana stem, the fiber then should carry a big portion of applied load working on the composite materials. The RPP should act as a bonding for the fiber of bananafatcat:ptewhpbfgvhsjdlhwlr7ncxr3i
