Natural fiber reinforced plastics (NFRP) have awakened considerable interest in the area of polymer composites, because of the need to develop new, environmentally friendly materials. One of the most complex ways of manufacturing this type of material is in the form of ultrathin laminar layers; however, this process hinders mechanical testing, mainly three and four-point bending. The present investigation faces this challenge and shows the influence of parameters, such as the grammage ofdoi:10.1590/s1516-14392011005000011 fatcat:xtrgqmantjfujmr5xslub7utgm
