dc.description.abstractSurface treatment of hemp fibres was investigated as a means of improving interfacial shear strength (IFSS) of hemp fibre reinforced polylactide (PLA) and unsaturated polyester (UPE) composites. Fibres were treated with sodium hydroxide, acetic anhydride, maleic anhydride and silane. A combined treatment using sodium hydroxide and silane was also carried out. IFSS of PLA/hemp fibre samples increased after treatment, except in the case of maleic anhydride treatment. Increased IFSS could be explained by better bonding of PLA with treated fibres and increased PLA transcrystallinity. The highest IFSS was 11.4 MPa which was obtained for the PLA/alkali treated fibre samples. IFSS of UPE/hemp fibre samples increased for all treated fibres. This is believed to be due to the improvement of chemical bonding between the treated fibres and the UPE as supported by FT-IR results. The highest IFSS (20.3 MPa) was found for the combined sodium hydroxide and silane treatment fibre/UPE samples.en_NZ
