Abstract

The synergy of the materials physical characteristics, performance and recyclability become vital for industrial sustainability. However, finding a suitable cellulosic fiber type to form potential cellulosic-based composite and investigating performance deteriorations are of paramount importance to expand sustainable design possibilities for various applications. In this work investigations of the mechanical performance deterioration of both Mediterranean cellulosic pine and cypress fibers are experimentally investigated. This was achieved by utilizing the fibers with polyethylene matrix to reveal their potential capabilities for industrial applications. Numerous composites with various parameters like fiber types, fiber loading, fiber size, and reinforcement conditions were designed to study several characteristics of the cellulosic composites, their mechanical performance deteriorations, as well as determining the optimal fiber loading condition for each particular studied mechanical property of the composites. Results demonstrate that mechanical properties are significantly changed with fiber loading. In addition, the failure mode in the high fiber loading composites is an obvious indication of the improper or ineffective load transfer between the matrix and the cellulosic fiber. Moreover, it is revealed here that the performance of cypress fibers with polyethylene matrix is much better than that of pine for the considered properties with reference to the neat polyethylene matrix. The overall performance of both types of fibers with polyethylene clearly demonstrates that the performance of cypress fibers is much better than that of pine for all considered properties.
