What is it about?

Soaking mangrove fibre-filled high density polyethylene in water and measure the tensile and thermal properties at saturation points

Why is it important?

To monitor the durability of untreated and heat-treated wood fibre reinforced plastic composites when used in outdoors.


This article has suggested a possible way of fibre treatment (by slightly heating) and subsequent application in thermoplastic composites used in external environment.
