Developing and testing of hemp fiber and ecological matrix composites
Autors: Ioan Cionca, Mihai Ciupan, Vasile Hereș
Abstract: The paper presents a description of composite materials with an emphasis on natural fiber composite materials. It reviews industries such as car making and civil engineering which make up the largest consumers of these materials and it presents some of their specific applications. The authors research the use of natural fiber composite materials in furniture making and show the results of mechanical and water resistance testing of two blends of hemp fibers and natural based matrices.
