Fiber morphology such as fiber length, fiber diameter and fiber lumen diameter Figure 2.13 . Jute is the most important fiber of this type, and it is probable that, in the industrial and engineering uses of textiles. In other words, the outer layer has no strength at all and including it in the calculation of the strength resulted in reduction in the strength of the fibres. The cleaning rate can reach 96% without any damage to the fiber itself. bast and core fibers length of Kenaf are 2.70 and 0.78 mm, respectively. The bast constitutes 40% of the plant. simple perforation; moderately large; majority in solitary and in multiples Meanwhile, some other works have been reported on the effect of the water absorption on the strength of polymeric composites based on natural fibres [10–12]. For cell pulping and other industries. Fiber microstructure, composition proportion and distribution, cellulose Segal crystallinity and polymerization as well as residual lignin structure were analyzed. The kenaf varieties with intermediate flowering that have been planted are namely V4, V12, V21, V23, V25, V33, V34, V36, V40, V41, V72, Sabdariffa Keewyai. It seems that the diesel and the engine oil acted as lubricant in the interface of the fibres with the matrix which assist in the putting out mechanism resulting in low strength. magnification of 400X. Malaysia and Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM), respectively. Scanning electron microscopy was used to evaluate the surface structure of the raw and steam-treated kenaf. The tensile strength properties of fibreboard This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Despite the reduction in the strength of the composites, there are many applications for such composites which required less than 80 MPa. In industrial applications, the usage of natural fibres is still under consideration since there are many uncertainties especially on the effect of environmental conditions on the behaviour of the natural fibres or the composites based on such composites. Kenaf plant is claimed as one of the fast-growing herbaceous plants with the high potential as a fiber material or lignocellulosic material. It is native in Africa. The kenaf fibres were processed through water retting, chemical retting and mechanical extractions. It is produced from flowering plants in the genus Corchorus, which is in the mallow family Malvaceae.The primary source of the fiber is Corchorus olitorius, but it is considered inferior to Corchorus capsularis. " The chemical composition and inorganic content of kenaf fibers was quantified. Diameter of the fibres was in the range of 0.31 mm 0.35 mm. The various forms Yang and Li studied the sound absorption coefficient of different natural fiber reinforced epoxy composites [ 27 ]. The properties in wood, especially if trees are growing more rapidly due to genetic In addition, it can be seen that the virgin treated fibres have the highest strength of about 155 MPa which is much greater than the untreated fibres. Life cycle of biopolymer and biocomposites . Q-ping showed the widest fiber diameter and lumen diameter amongst the nine varieties, with value of 28.64 μm in bast fiber and 28.06 μm in core diameter. cell wall thickness compared to other varieties. In other words, there is no remarkable effect of aging on the interfacial adhesion since the most impact was on the structure of the fibres. SEM micrograph of aged treated kenaf fibre sample. from bark known as bast and shortest wood fiber from the central part of the This fact is about 0.6, 0.8, 0.6, 0.6, and 0.4 if the environments are water, salted water, diesel, or engine oil, respectively. M. Asim, M. Jawaid, M. Nasir, and N. Saba, “Effect of fiber loadings and treatment on dynamic mechanical, thermal and flammability properties of pineapple leaf fiber and kenaf phenolic composites,” Journal of Renewable Materials, vol. Kenaf is a fast growing annual growth plant that is harvested for its bast fibers. Sign up here as a reviewer to help fast-track new submissions. The mixed resin of epoxy and hardener was poured gently in the mould to avoid any bubble generation. diffuse-porous, consisting of fibres, vessel members and typically rectangular The results showed that the pretreatment of steam explosion could sufficiently extract most of the hemicellulose from kenaf more » … More than 5 attempts have been made for each test to gain the accurate value of the test. It grows very fast, and thanks to the recent Farm Bill it is now legal in the United States. The effect of different kenaf retting processes and fiber loadings on tensile strength of kenaf bast fibers reinforced UPE composites is illustrated in Fig. The authors declare that there are no conflicts of interest regarding the publication of this paper. Bacterial retting was done in troughs at a temperature of 30 ± 2°C. In the treatment process, the fibres were immersed in the solution and then washed with water. properties, appearance, resistance to penetration by water and chemicals, resistance As an herbaceous plant, kenaf Kenaf is cultivated for its fiber in India, Bangladesh, U.S., Indonesia, Malaysia, South Africa, Viet Nam, Thailand, and parts of Africa, and to a small extent in southeast Europe. et al., 2000; Amaducci et al., 2000; A small amount of fibers were then transferred Meanwhile, the shortest fiber was found in variety V12 with the The process involves splitting of core and bast separately into matchstick size This is mainly due to the removal of the outer layer of the fibres which resulted in reduction in the cross section area. Kenaf fibres were treated chemically with 6% NaOH solution. In the modern time, Malaysia make kenaf fiber boards for export them in Japan. species is the vessels in kenaf denser near the pith and lesser near the bark, Kenaf is a fast growing annual growth plant that is harvested for its bast fibers. (iv)In the design and material selection of the kenaf fibres reinforced epoxy composites, environmental effect should be considered with a factor depending on the nature of the environment. The first stage of dehydration process was carried out by immersing and washing the sliced sections for two minutes in an increasing series of alcohol concentration, which start from 30, 50 to 70% concentration alcohol. The detailed examinations of the sections were carried out using the microscopic magnification of 100X. 37, respectively. diameter and fiber lumen diameter. Kenaf fibres were aged in engine oil, water, salt water, and diesel. The stress versus deformation is presented associated with the average values of the each set of tests. The other names of kenaf are Ambary, Bimli, Deccan Hemp With regard to the influence of the 6% NaOH treatment on the aged samples, Figures 6(a)–6(e) show the micrographs of the samples with different aging processes. Abstract: Kenaf core was tested for its ability to sorb diesel oil from the pure diesel oil bath and the diesel oil containing water bath after extracting with diethyl ether to remove wax from fiber surface, grinding to disrupt lumen structure and presoaking in water. (2000) stated that the difference in fiber length of different variety Kenaf is a type of fast growing plant and it can grow to a height about 3.5 to 4.5 meters within a 5 month. However, the core fibers are shorter than softwoods and close to Maximum strength can be seen when virgin fibres were tested which achieved about 110 MPa. magnification of 100X, V12 cross sections (a) near pith and (b) near bark under microscopic The felting coefficient should be more than 70 for softwoods minimum value of hardwood fibers. Cross sections with the thickness of 20-30 μm were slice using the sliding microtome. The fineness and morphology of kenaf fibres are the main focus of this paper. After 10 days of bacterial retting, the stalks were washed in hot water, air dried, combed, and subjected to tests for fiber characteristics. Nine kenaf varieties i.e., Q-Ping, KK60, V12, V19, V36, V132 and NS V133 and TK were introduced recently by Taman Pertanian Universiti, Universiti Putra Malaysia as one of the potential plant to replace tobacco plantation. Design of Hybrid Kenaf/Glass Fiber Reinforced Epoxy for Energy Absorption Tube Structure by Filament Winding Technology March 2019 Conference: National Enau Seminar, Malaysia 2019 On the other hand, no much work has been reported on the influence of environmental conditions on the natural fibres behaviour . The increase in the amount of the fibres in the composites would reduce the strength further with the high amount of fibres. B. Azhar, and M. I. Most of varieties except and 40 for hardwoods to produce good quality fiberboard and paper (Akgul Kenaf Fibers and Composites covers the breadth of these exciting materials, from raw material preparation to application in a variety of products. This explained the poor performance of the composites in those conditions. With two big wheels, the machine is easy to move. This layer on the kenaf surface would prevent the penetration of the epoxy during the curing causing some deboning around the interfacial area of the fibre with the matrix. Kenaf fiber is gaining attention as an alternative reinforcement for composite products due to low cost, reduced environmental impact, and attractive mechanical properties. b. Kenaf plant is claimed as one of the fast-growing herbaceous plants with the high potential as a fiber material or lignocellulosic material. Fiber Morphology 1. Thus, this study focuses onthe effect of surface treatment of kenaf fiber on chemical structure and water absorption of kenaf filled unsaturated polyester compositefor different loadings of kenaf fiber and stearic acid. 30. FTIR spectra of (a) raw bast kenaf fiber; (b) NaOH-treated fiber; (c) bleached fiber; (d) sulfuric acid stretching at 2900 - 2800 cm−1 indicates presence of whiskers; and (e) HCl The peak located at 1728 cm−1 in the spectra of kenaf fiber is related to the C=O stretching of the acetyl groups of hemicelluloses and p-coumaric acids of lignin [33-35]. The result may be influenced whereas, the vessels in tropical hardwood arranged in no specific pattern. Information about main mechanical properties are shown in the chart below and can be compared to properties of commonly used fibers such glass fiber , aramid fiber , and carbon fiber . At each amount of fibres, a number of fibres were determined and the tensile strength of the bundles was tested. This has been reported previously in composite aging of coir fibres . The general results revealed that aging of the fibres reduced their strength and interfacial adhesion. Treating the fibres with 6% NaOH significantly improved the interfacial adhesion of the fibres with the matrix. It may be proposed that some of the salt may enter the fibre structure which can interlock the fibres in the matrix. The stress versus deformation is for the pull-out testing results which represent the strength of the fibres and the interfacial adhesion characteristics of the fibre with the epoxy matrix. The pull-out tests were performed using microtensile tests. Abstract: Kenaf core was tested for its ability to sorb diesel oil from the pure diesel oil bath and the diesel oil containing water bath after extracting with diethyl ether to remove wax from fiber surface, grinding to disrupt lumen structure and presoaking in water. al. Data are ecpressed as Mean±SD based on 50 measurements. substances that make up kenaf, but also how those substances are distributed was on the width of ray. et al., 1994; Yu and Yu, 2007). The fibres were fixed in vertical direction using string fixed in the bottom of the mould. All the kenaf varieties had longer bast fiber and thicker fiber cell wall than the core fiber. The structure and contents of the cell wall differs widely between different species and between different parts of the plants. of their 1st flower initiation on 80 to 100 days after planting (Aini Z.

EXPERIMENTAL DETAILS EFB and kenaf core fibers used for the experiments were obtained from Sabutek Sdn. Lignin is made up of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbon polymers positioned around fibers. This has been observed in the literature as well with other natural fires such as coir , date palm , and oil palm fibres . Table 1 shows the ANOVA result for the mean value of fiber than the hardwood fibers (0.7-1.6 mm) (Ates et al., Materials Kenaf fiber was obtained from RahamatullahSdn. From the results, V19 and V12 had the wider ray among the nine varieties, whereas other varieties in their microscopic appearance were almost similar to those observed in many diffuse-porous hardwoods. Salt water showed the least effect on the strength of the fibres. Also, some of the fibres seem to have inner fine fibres which are in bundle form. microscopic magnification of 100X, V19 cross sections (a) near pith and (b) near bark under microscopic For the aging process, the untreated fibres showed poor results since there is double action in the interface between the fibres and the matrix which is the presence of the waxy layer and the solution as well which resulted in very poor interfacial adhesion of the fibres with the matrix. in this study was 22 μm in mean and was in normal range when compared to The above results showed that adding of the composites in solution reduces the strength of the composites after three months. hardwoods fiber with the diameter ranged from 20.0 to 40.0 μm (Ates Review articles are excluded from this waiver policy. structure and morphology of the residues. Cellulose fiber response to mechanical stresses change depending on fiber type and chemical structure present. Kenaf fiber had been explored to enhance desired mechanical properties as automotive structural components. The sample discs from all the kenaf varieties were soften in an autoclave at temperature of 121°C for 30 min prior to sectioning and maceration process. Kenaf is a fast growing annual growth plant that is harvested for its bast fibers. Probable structure of lignin .  studied the effect of frost on kenaf fiber quality. The felting coefficient of all the nine Kenaf varieties Therefore, this review paper will focus on the kenaf fiber reinforced in variety thermoplastic matrices. For example, under the salted water aging process, the reduction in the strength of the untreated fibres was to 80 MPa. The samples were then placed in the machine for testing. Kenaf finds use in the domestic market in many countries, but its demand The results showed that the pretreatment of steam explosion could sufficiently extract most of the hemicellulose from kenaf more » … The objective of this thesis was to evaluate kenaf fibers as an alternative natural fiber in the development of polypropylene composites. The measurement of kenaf core and bast for their fiber morphology Aluminum alloys materials have a strength of about 70 MPa which is used for tank, vessel, ships, and other marines’ applications. There are bundle of vessels near the pith compare to cross or provenances of a single species can also respond differently to the same 4, pp. In aging process of the kenaf fibres samples, the samples were immersed in different solutions which are water, salt water, and diesel and engine oil. The knowledge that mentioned can be gained by studying their crop for the production of pulp and paper, ropes, twine, coarse, burlap and microscopic magnification of 100X were shown from Fig. of the kenaf fiber is greater than the ramie fiber and lesser than the baggase fiber. The fibres were cut in 50 mm length. In this work, thermoplastic sago starch (TPSS)/kenaf core fiber (KF) biocomposites were prepared at different fiber loadings (0 to 35 wt.%), and the effects of fiber loading were analyzed by mechanical tests, TGA, FTIR, SEM, and water absorption behavior. The reaction of NaOH with kenaf fiber is presented in the following equation: The results of the current study are divided into two parts as untreated kenaf fibres and treated kenaf fibres. Probable structure of lignin 25 Figure 2.11 Structure of plant fiber 26 Figure 2.12 (A) Kenaf plantation and (B) kenaf reaching the height of 3 m 28 Figure 2.13 Life cycle of biopolymer and biocomposites 30 Figure 2.14 Schematic representation of interaction35 The intermediate flowering A. Shalwan, M. Alajmi, A. Alajmi, "Effect of Aging Process in Different Solutions on Kenaf Fibre Structure and Its Interfacial Adhesion in Epoxy Composites", International Journal of Polymer Science, vol. This can be explained with the fact that the fibrous region in the composites can be the weak region in the composites. In other words, there is some decomposition to the fibre itself which would weaken it and result in lower performance of the aged composites in water compared to the unaged samples. This distinction morphology can be used as a tool to identify the kenaf varieties in this study. However, Q-ping had the thinnest core cell wall with the thickness of 3.34 μm. The EFB and kenaf core fibers were used as a substitute for phenol to reduce the consumption of petroleum-based phenol by kenaf fiber is a good alternative to wood in the pulp and paper industry (YA El-Shekeil, Sapuan & Khalina 2012). (iii)SEM observations showed different damage on the samples and the most significant damage was observed when the samples were aged in diesel and engine oil since the fibres structure was deteriorated. 5219 Influences of Layered Structure on Physical and Mechanical Properties of Kenaf Core Particleboard Xinwu Xu,a Qinglin Wu,a,b,* and Dingguo Zhou a,* Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus), a fast-growing fiber crop, is a potential substitute for wood to make composition boards. Study of the effect of surface treatment of kenaf fiber on chemical structure and water absorption of kenaf filled unsaturated polyester composite To cite this article: I A S Salem et al 2017 J. The hollow structure of kenaf fiber can be seen in Figure 9. in the cell walls. SEM micrograph of aged untreated kenaf fibre sample. The anatomical structure play an important role in selecting While the rest showed fine rays. In the design and material selection of the kenaf fibres reinforced epoxy composites, environmental effect should be considered with a factor depending on the nature of the environment. There are nine kenaf varieties i.e., Q-Ping, KK60, V12, V19, V36, V132 and Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L., Malvaceae) is one of the fast-growing were carried out using the Leitz DMRB with microscopic magnification of 400X. length/fiber diameter). bast were washed gently using distilled water and shaken in distilled water Seventeen varieties of selected kenaf germplasm were introduced and planted in MARDI Serdang Station trial plots, Malaysia. The fiber morphology of Kenaf is comparison with other fibrous materials as with the length of 2.96 mm, while V19 had the shortest bast fiber with the length These fibers have excellent specific properties and have potential to be outstanding reinforcing fillers in plastics. Various environmental mats are produced from kenaf fibers. Kenaf fiber structure. The scanning electron microscopy was used to observe the structural changes resulting from the aging effect on the samples focusing on the fibres. 2.Experimental 2.1. For sectioning process, the kenaf bast was removed the core parts of the sample discs were cut into small strips with the dimension of two cm in length and 0.5-1 cm in width. The longest fiber length was observed in variety TK (2.96 mm) followed by V36. 1. The hollow structure of kenaf fiber can be seen in Figure 9. Therefore, pressure higher than 2.5 MPa is not suggested for the degumming of kenaf for textile purposes. The fibres fist was cleaned and extracted. In Figure 3(a) the trends of the stress against the strain are similar to the untreated fibres trends given in Figure 2. for the same species is usually due genetically inherited and other external Based on this study, it was found that the sound absorption coefficient was less than 0.5 for the frequency of 0 Hz to 4500 Hz. With the aging process with water, Figure 5(b) shows the exposed fibres were slightly cleaned with the splitting of the fibres into fine fibres. bast fibers such as flax, hemp, jute, ramie, and kenaf; kenaf fiber is seen as a potential natural fiber with robust mechanical. Copyright © 2018 A. Shalwan et al. Conclusively, although kenaf exhibit similarity in some fiber morphology and anatomical structures, however, there still some distinction that can be used to differentiate these kenaf variety. wall thickness, all the varieties except V36, NS and V19 are not significant Kenaf usually produce in large amount as it is has high adaption and easily grow. Q-Ping and KK60 are early flowering kenaf varieties where they In Malaysia, extensive research on Kenaf plants had been carried out by MARDI and Institute of Tropical Forestry and Forest Products (INTROP). The treatment assists in removing all the substances on the surface of the fibres and exposing the inner structure of the fibres. He found that kenaf planted in Greece had fines ray and Kenaf fiber is gaining attention as an alternative reinforcement for composite products due to low cost, reduced environmental impact, and attractive mechanical properties. This can be the reason of the poor performance of the untreated fibres. However, this increase in the usage of such composites increases the amount of disposing such materials which became an environmental issue in the current era. similar patterns with that observed by Voulgaridis et Example of the bast and core for fiber diameter, lumen diameter and cell wall thickness of all kenaf varieties are shown from Fig. This paper reports the structure‐property relationships of kenaf fiber The longest kenaf core fiber was observed in V36 with the length soils or in different climate zones (Hazandy et al., the right kenaf varieties for particular usage because its affects strength Kenaf is a warm season annual fiber crop closely related to cotton and jute. Kenaf fiber is gaining attention as an alternative reinforcement for composite products due to low cost, reduced environmental impact, and attractive mechanical properties. follows of the structure and properties of jute and kenaf, this common knowledge is presented without critical annotation of references; a list of the principle books and papers that are considered relevant is appended instead. The strongest engineering materials often incorporate fibers, for example carbon fiber and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene. With regard to the effect of aging process on the strength of the samples, Figure 3(b) shows the averages of the strength of the aged samples. One drop of safranine-o was dropped into the fibers plant namely V 12; V 19; V36; V132 and NS starts flowering between 64 to 93 of anatomical structure may produce different properties in different kenaf However, Figure 6(b) shows that aging the samples with water damaged the structure of the fibres which weakened the strength of the fibres and this can explain the poor performance of the composites. Reducing the impact of polymer composites is the ambition of many current researchers and environmental activities. According to research results (Wood 2000; Rymsza 2001; Kozlowski 2000), the kenaf yield (12–30 t/ha) is greater than those of hemp, flax, and jute, thus providing a more cost-effective raw material. days after planting. Decorticated kenaf stalks were retted by bacterial and chemical processes. 1.1 Kenaf plant and fiber Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) is a species of Hibiscus that can be found in southern Asia. environment (Haarer, 1952). varieties. Research in the United States to use the kenaf bast (outer bark) fibers for rope began in the 1940's when jute imports from Asia were interrupted by World War II. 0.02 g–0.05 g of fibres was embedded in the samples and the tests have been performed on all the samples and the most accurate results were determined. Kenaf is a promising source of raw material fiber for pulp, paper and other fiber products, and has been introduced since WWII in China, USSR, Thailand, South Africa, Egypt, Mexico and Cuba. with heights of 5 to 6 m in about 4-5 month (Alexopoulou Kenaf is an annual plant and fiber in the bast fiber was classified into groups called as a bast fiber. He conducted detailed evaluation on fiber processing and chemical composition. The microscopic features of different kenaf varieties showed similar distribution With regard to the effect of the fibre weight bundle in the strength of the single fibre and the pull-out characteristics, both treated and untreated fibres did not show a remarkable influence of bundle weight on the strength of the single fibre or the pull-out results.
