Effect of Retting on Surface Chemistry and Mechanical Performance Interactions in Natural Fibers for High Performance Polymer Composites Page: 3
The following text was automatically extracted from the image on this page using optical character recognition software:
surface morphology and cross sectional architecture were preserved in pectinase
retting. Experimental results showed that enzymatic retting at 48 hours and controlled
microbial retting at 72 hours yield uniform and superior quality fibers compared to alkali
and natural retting process. Controlled microbial retting is an inexpensive way to
produce quality fibers for polymer composite reinforcement.
Here’s what’s next.
