Natural fibre composites are increasingly being viewed as viable and environmentally responsible alternatives to synthetic fibre composites and plastics. Sugar Palm Biofibers, Biopolymers, and Biocomposites considers the use of sugar palm fibres for materials development and application. It offers original research on the properties and behavior of sugar palm’s fibres, polymers, and biocomposites, covering mechanical, physical, thermal, chemical, environmental, morphological properties, as well as optimal design. It discusses sugar palm fibre thermosetting composites, sugar palm fibre thermoplastic composites, impregnation of sugar palm fibre, various lengths of sugar palm fibres, forms and arrangements such as particulate, continuous roving, and woven fabrics. The book also discusses innovations in commercialized products derived from sugar palm.
