Review of Manufacturing Process of Natural Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites
Keywords:Natural Fiber Reinforced Polymer, Composite, Injection Molding, Sheet Molding Compound, Pultrusion
Lately, natural fibers have been gaining consideration in development of composites due to its biodegradability, availability and low-cost compared to synthetic fibers. Natural fibers are renewable sources, biodegradable, environmentally friendly and effortless in machinery. In this paper, the manufacturing of production for natural fiber reinforced polymer composite (NFRC) will be reviewed. These including injection molding, resin transfer molding (RTM), pultrusion, sheet molding compound (SMC) and compression molding processing technique. Injection molding and compression molding are mostly used in the industry. This is due to the machines give a good finishing surface of the products and low cost
