Abstract

In recent years natural fibers appear to be the outstanding materials which come as the viable and abundant substitute for the expensive and non-renewable synthetic fiber. The advantage of natural fibers is their continuous supply, easy and safe handling, and biodegradable nature. The objective of the present work is to explore the potential of using PINEAPPLE LEAF FIBER as reinforcement and investigate the effect of fiber length on mechanical properties of PALF reinforced polypropylene Resin composite.
