Characterization and mechanical properties of bast fibre
Author(s): Tanushree and Bhawana Chanana
So far no detail study has been carried out for scientific extraction of the fibres from any of these plants and the characteristics of fibre have not been evaluated properly. It is envisaged that there will be global shortage of conventional natural fibres by the turn of the century. In this context. The search for new fibre bearing non-conventional plants will be an appropriate step towards meeting the future demand of natural fibre. Hence the present study was undertaken with the general objective to optimize the methods for extraction of Bast fibres from certain non-conventional plants and to evaluate their physio-chemical characteristics.
