Natural reinforced composites for automotive and building applications
Keywords:Composites, Natural reinforcements, Corn powder, Pine powder, Automotive
The assumption of the future exhaustion of the crude reserves world-wide and the increasing environmental concerns is leading to consider, more and more insistently, the use of regenerable raw materials for the design and development of new vehicle components. The main objective of this project consists on the evaluation of pine powder and corn powder as reinforcement for different PP resins. A compatilibization study has been defined and set-up in order to combine these two reinforcements with three different resins based on PP. A final material selection has been carried out to produce an automotive prototype part.
