Article information

Natural fibres, nowadays; have become the matter of discussion in the research field amongst various scientists to inculcate it in the formation of composites instead of production of composites using synthetic fibres like glass, carbon and aramid. This is due to various advantages associated with natural fibres like eco-friendly, low cost, availability in abundance and its bio-degradability. Lots of work has been carried out in the production of natural fibre reinforced polymer composites, using natural fibres like jute, hemp, cotton, sisal, kenaf, bagasse, areca, abaca, bamboo etc. and their properties have been studied. Here is an attempt made on the literature survey of areca fibre reinforced polymer composites where different properties of areca fibres, its maturity level, surface treatment effect on properties of fibres, composite formation with different matrices, its mechanical properties, thermal and acoustic properties related to different composites has been highlighted.
