Abstract

In this work, oil palm empty fixit bunch (OPEFB) reinforced polylactic acid composites were fabricated by hotcompress. The OPEFB fibers were treated by y- aminopropyl trimethoxysilane (APS) and coated with polylactic acid (PLA) in varied percentage (5%, 10% and 1 5%). The treatment reaction was analyzed by FTIR and the effect of fiber treatment on the flexural and dynamic mechanical properties of OPEFBPL composites were examined. The flexural properties of composites were increased with increasing of fiber coating and improved by introduction of APS. It was also observed that the APS treated fibers had improved the dynamic mechanical properties of the composites respectively.
