Palm fibers were immersed in sea water for 1, 2, 3, and 4 weeks prior to application as reinforcement of green biocomposite. Instead of common resin matrix, natural sago starch was applied as the matrix compound.

The quality of interfacial bonds became higher by additional duration of the sea water immersion. The bestdoi:10.1155/2016/9240416 fatcat:kvb5wc2jmrbctf3oyfzsfb3lfm
