of the kenaf fiber is greater than the ramie fiber and lesser than the baggase fiber. and Tozluoglu, 2009). (2000) stated that the difference in fiber length of different variety In the fabrication process, the mould was coated with a thin layer of release agent to ensure the ease of the sample removal after curing. Kenaf is a fast growing annual growth plant that is harvested for its bast fibers. Meanwhile, the reduction in the cases of the treated fibres was about 100 MPa. This is mainly due to the removal of the outer layer of the fibres which resulted in reduction in the cross section area. (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. magnification of 400X. H. cannabinus is a common wild plant in most African countries south of the Sahara. diameter and fiber lumen diameter and the fiber cell wall thickness of nine magnification of 100X, Mean value of fiber length, fiber diameter and fiber lumen It can be seen that the aging process on the samples reduces the strength of the fibres and the samples in general. The EFB and kenaf core fibers were used as a substitute for phenol to reduce the consumption of petroleum-based phenol by Yang and Li studied the sound absorption coefficient of different natural fiber reinforced epoxy composites [ 27 ]. These fibers have excellent specific properties and have potential to be outstanding reinforcing fillers in plastics. Gita Ramaswamy et al. Figure 2.11 . automotive parts using the kenaf fiber materials. At most cases, the breakage in the fibres is the main failure. There are also four late flowering kenaf namely TK, V133, KB-6 and K114-2 planted in MARDI Serdang trial plots. Review articles are excluded from this waiver policy. 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. With the case of the salted water aging, Figure 5(c) shows a covered layer of salt on the surface of the fibres. 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 fiber length may influence the various The longest kenaf core fiber was observed in V36 with the length The cleaning rate can reach 96% without any damage to the fiber itself. The hollow structure of kenaf fiber can be seen in Figure 9. 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. Malaysia and Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM), respectively. (Neutral mounting medium) and were dried for 7 days. The tensile strength properties of fibreboard Fiber derived plants classified taxonomically in the Fucaria section of Hibiscus, Sign up here as a reviewer to help fast-track new submissions. These fibers have excellent specific properties and have potential to be outstanding reinforcing fillers in plastics. Fibre polymer composites are increasingly replacing the conventional materials in several industrial applications due to their low weight, low cost, and high specific strength compared to conventional metal materials. In other words, in component design a factor of environment should be considered. The stress versus strain of aged untreated kenaf fibres is given in Figures 2(a) and 2(b). start flowering within two months after planting. found in study by Ates et al. It can be seen that water retted fibers reinforced composites constantly showed higher value than mechanical retted kenaf bast fibers reinforced composites at all fiber loadings. In recent review article , it has been reported that water absorption significantly affects the structure of the natural fibres and attacks the interfacial adhesion of the fibres with the matrix. of 0.89 mm. simple perforation; moderately large; majority in solitary and in multiples Kenaf is a warm season annual fiber crop closely related to cotton and jute. Alkaline nitrobenzene oxidation of coniferous wood lignin yields 24–28% vanillin, based on the Klason lignin, while non-coniferous wood lignin gives a total yield of 35–51% vanillin and syringaldehyde [ … The tensile machine was at low capacity of 10 kN only since the failure of the fibres is below the maximum capacity of the machine. In both cases, the salt was adhered to the surface of the fibres which can help to strengthen the interfacial adhesion of the fibre with the epoxy. 2009). Decorticated kenaf stalks were retted by bacterial and chemical processes. Kenaf finds use in the domestic market in many countries, but its demand The intermediate flowering On the other hand, the treatment of the fibres assisted in dropping the effect of the aging since the reduction in the strength of the treated aged fibres is much less than the untreated fibres. In addition, due to the difficulties in fixing the samples on the machine, bundle of the fibres was used at different amount of fibres. Kenaf fibre is one of the most popular natural fibres due to its high growth, high strength, and good structure compared to other natural fibres, [5–8]. This study was carried out to examine the nine kenaf varieties microscopic appearance and fiber morphology because the reliable identification of these varieties is not available. stem as core. Table 1 shows the ANOVA result for the mean value of fiber The failure mechanisms of the samples seem to be controlled by the treatment of the fibres. The authors declare that there are no conflicts of interest regarding the publication of this paper. The effect of alkalization of milled kenaf fiber Using kenaf fibres reinforced epoxy composites for similar applications is possible. V represents the virgin fibres which have not been aged or treated. A mould of 20 mm × 20 mm × 40 mm was fabricated from a metal. 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. Aging in diesel and engine oil has dramatically impacted on the fibre structure as can be seen in Figures 5(d) and 5(e). The result shows that all the kenaf bast fiber suitable for It is believed that an alkali treatment on kenaf fiber has the capability on changing the fine structure of the native cellulose I to cellulose II by a process known as alkalization [72,79,82]. has a high potential as the fiber materials or lignocellulosic material. varieties. Aging the treated samples with salted water exhibited similar effects to those of the untreated ones as can be seen in Figures 5(c) and 6(c). can be used as one of the identical features for certain varieties of Eucalyptus One of the major different between kenaf and tropical hardwood It may be proposed that some of the salt may enter the fibre structure which can interlock the fibres in the matrix. This paper reports the structure‐property relationships of kenaf fiber were carried out using the Leitz DMRB with microscopic magnification of 400X. This paper reports the structure‐property relationships of kenaf fiber reinforced polypropylene (PP) and its impact copolymers. 383–393 The stress versus deformation is presented associated with the average values of the each set of tests. and paper tensile strength properties. Salt water showed the least effect on the strength of the fibres. Fig. After conducting the pull-out tests on the treated and untreated kenaf fibres reinforced epoxy and analyzing the results, the main findings can be concluded as follows:(i)Treating the fibres with 6% NaOH significantly improved the interfacial adhesion of the fibres with the matrix. (ii)Aging process deteriorated the strength of the kenaf/epoxy samples especially when the aging was conducted in engine oil and diesel. The fiber length, fiber The flexural strength of hybrid glass/kenaf/glass laminates was 32.5 % higher than non-hybrid glass fiber reinforced composites. The chemical composition and inorganic content of kenaf fibers was quantified. However, due to the presence of the water, there is deterioration in the structure of the fibres rather than the interfacial bonding area. dimension of the middle position of the kenaf block. The structure and contents of the cell wall differs widely between different species and between different parts of the plants. Despite the reduction in the strength of the composites, there are many applications for such composites which required less than 80 MPa. There could be built-up boundary around the fibres in the composites while it is under aging process in engine oil or diesel. properties, appearance, resistance to penetration by water and chemicals, resistance P.

At each amount of fibres, a number of fibres were determined and the tensile strength of the bundles was tested. KENAF is a type of hemp fiber native to east-central Africa where it has been grown for several thousand years for food and fiber. The volume fraction of the fibres in the composites is the most important key in determining the amount of the fibres in the composites. Kenaf was subjected to alkaline pretreatment using 4.42% sodium hydroxide operated at 100 C for 1 hour and acid pretreatment using 0.1% nitric acid which was run at 60 C for 12 hours. However, in terms of the number of fibres in each weight, the number is determined before conducting the test to determine the strength and the pull-out of the composite accordingly. Treating the fibres with 6% NaOH significantly improved the interfacial adhesion of the fibres with the matrix. Seventeen varieties of selected kenaf germplasm were introduced and planted in MARDI Serdang Station trial plots, Malaysia. A small amount of fibers were then transferred was on the width of ray. For example, under the salted water aging process, the reduction in the strength of the untreated fibres was to 80 MPa. The longest bast fiber amongst the nine kenaf varieties was observed in TK The cross sections near pith and near bark of kenaf varieties observed under In the case of the water and salt water, the effect was not that bad. magnification of 100X, V12 cross sections (a) near pith and (b) near bark under microscopic The reaction of NaOH with kenaf fiber is presented in the following equation: onto a slide. https://scialert.net/abstract/?doi=ajsr.2009.161.166, Q-ping cross sections (a) near pith and (b) near bark under length of 0.66 mm. There are nine kenaf varieties i.e., Q-Ping, KK60, V12, V19, V36, V132 and Fibers are often used in the manufacture of other materials. from the plant originates from the stalk itself; relatively long fiber aggregates This has been reported previously in composite aging of coir fibres . In term of fiber length, all the kenaf varieties bast fiber has longer fiber than core fiber. with the length of 2.96 mm, while V19 had the shortest bast fiber with the length with heights of 5 to 6 m in about 4-5 month (Alexopoulou Kenaf fiber is gaining attention as an alternative reinforcement for composite products due to low cost, reduced environmental impact, and attractive mechanical properties. Theoretically, kenaf fiber is a traditional third world crop after wood and bamboo which originated from Asia and Africa. Bacterial retting was done in troughs at a temperature of 30 ± 2°C. 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. 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. The detailed examinations of the sections were carried out using the microscopic magnification of 100X. The kenaf core of nine varieties has wider fiber diameter and fiber lumen diameter than the bast fiber. These fibers have excellent specific properties and have potential to be outstanding reinforcing fillers in plastics. wall thickness, all the varieties except V36, NS and V19 are not significant al. The fibres were then dried in oven at temperature of 50°C for 24 hr. Cross Section of Kenaf under Microscopic Observation The effects of woven and non-woven kenaf fiber on mechanical properties of polyester composites were studied at different types of perform structures. Effect of Aging Process in Different Solutions on Kenaf Fibre Structure and Its Interfacial Adhesion in Epoxy Composites, Manufacturing Engineering Technology Department, College of Technological Studies, Public Authority for Applied Education and Training, 13092 Kuwait City, Kuwait, Automotive and Marine Technology Department, College of Technological Studies, PAAET, Kuwait City, Kuwait. from bark known as bast and shortest wood fiber from the central part of the most effectively, it requires a knowledge of not only the amounts of various or provenances of a single species can also respond differently to the same The microscopic appearances of kenaf in this study showing We will be providing unlimited waivers of publication charges for accepted research articles as well as case reports and case series related to COVID-19. In the case of untreated fibres a waxed layer is used to cover the fibres and prevent the epoxy to enter the fibres during the curing process. of the tissues such as vessels, ray parenchyma and fibers size. environment (Haarer, 1952). length/fiber diameter). The samples were kept in the solution for three months and then removed from the solution. Figure 2.12 (A) Kenaf plantation and (B) kenaf reaching the height of 3 m . Fiber microstructure, composition proportion and distribution, cellulose Segal crystallinity and polymerization as well as residual lignin structure were analyzed. the treated fibers structure that the lignin content decreased in bleached kenaf fiber. 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. The result may be influenced Interfacial adhesion of kenaf fibres in epoxy composites was investigated using single fibre pull-out test. Scientists state that the overall properties of kenaf fiber depends on the individual properties of each of its components. 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. fines ray parenchyma. Figure 4 shows the possible failure in the case of treated and untreated fibres. Two types of kenaf fibres were used in the work, those treated with 6% NaOH and those untreated kenaf fibres. Fiber microstructure, composition proportion and distribution, cellulose Segal crystallinity and polymerization as well as residual lignin structure were analyzed. The bast constitutes 40% of the plant. It is strongly not recommended to use the kenaf fibres in an environment which has either diesel or engine oil. 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. Maximum strength can be seen when virgin fibres were tested which achieved about 110 MPa. (b) Phylogenetic relationships among kenaf cultivars. species is the vessels in kenaf denser near the pith and lesser near the bark, Bhd. Furthermore, the study of fiber morphology will provide some basic information on the fiber quality of kenaf for pulp production. On the other hand, no much work has been reported on the influence of environmental conditions on the natural fibres behaviour . Fig 1: IR Spectra of (a) Kenaf fiber (Retted) (b) Kenaf (degummed) and (c) Kenaf (bleached) Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) The surface appearance of raw, degummed, and bleached fibers was studied using SEM images as shown in Fig 2(a, b, c). than the hardwood fibers (0.7-1.6 mm) (Ates et al., Meanwhile, in the case of the treating the fibres, inner fibres are opened and the epoxy can penetrate inside the fibres and interlock the fibres in the composites. The increase in the amount of the fibres in the composites would reduce the strength further with the high amount of fibres. 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. In the cases of the aged composites, there is reduction in the overall strength of the composites with the increase of the weight of the fibre bundle. 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. The above results showed that adding of the composites in solution reduces the strength of the composites after three months. The fiber morphology of Kenaf is comparison with other fibrous materials as 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. 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. diameter and fiber lumen diameter. Meanwhile, the non-hybrid tube content for kenaf composite tube have fiber mass fraction of ray parenchyma. In term of fiber length, all the kenaf varieties bast fiber has longer fiber than core fiber. 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. The general results revealed that aging of the fibres reduced their strength and interfacial adhesion. from each maceration slide to obtain the average value of fiber length, fiber fiberboard (Webber and Bledsoe, 1993; Petrini Copyright © 2018 A. Shalwan et al. Kenaf Fibers and Composites covers the breadth of these exciting materials, from raw material preparation to application in a variety of products. Therefore, pressure higher than 2.5 MPa is not suggested for the degumming of kenaf for textile purposes. 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. Tsoumis (1991) and Voulgaridis et Fiber or fibre (from Latin: fibra) is a natural or man-made substance that is significantly longer than it is wide. (2000).

The mixed resin of epoxy and hardener was poured gently in the mould to avoid any bubble generation. Specifically, 2.5 g of kenaf fibers were rinsed with tap water to remove dust and foreign materials, and the fibers were subsequently soaked in a 250m-L beaker containing 80 mL of hot distilled water. kenaf, but a few are grown as perennials. Accordingly, the single fibre pull-out test was determined. However, kenaf core of nine varieties had wider fiber diameter and fiber lumen diameter than the bast fiber. in the cell walls. microscopic magnification of 100X were shown from Fig. The results of the aged fibres after pull-out testing are given in Figures 3(a) and 3(b). The effects of woven and non-woven kenaf fiber on mechanical properties of polyester composites were studied at different types of perform structures. of 2.28 mm. The fineness and morphology of kenaf fibres are the main focus of this paper. 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. to decay, pulp quality and the chemical reactivity of fiber. Kenaf is an annual plant and fiber in the bast fiber was classified into groups called as a bast fiber.
