Development of Rubber and Agricultural Fiber based Biocomposite for Industrial Application 2008-01-2626

Flax, which is known for its linens and oils that are used for industrial products, can also be utilized as a cost effective and environmentally acceptable approach to the creation of a partially biodegradable biocomposite. Biocomposite material is investigated by combining recycled tire rubber, flax and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). The manufacturing process which be used to fabricate the biocomposite product included Extrusion and Compression Molding. Optimizing and studying the composition percentages of the compounds were studied in this paper. Moreover, the properties of the product were observed by using tensile test, tearing test, water absorption test, hardness test and Differential Scanning Calorimetry.
