Characterisation of Banana Fiber - A Review

Abstract

ABSTRACT Today engineering industries are seeking to produce eco-friendly materials. Natural fibers have distinct properties like high strength, low weight, low cost processing and bio degradability than synthetic fibers such as glass fiber and carbon fiber. Some of the annual natural fibers are banana, jute, coir, bamboo, hemp, etc.., among these fiber banana fibers have high strength and plenty in availability. Present work divulges extraction of banana fibers, study of mechanical, chemical, physical behaviour of banana fibers. Chemical treatments, processing techniques, surface morphology; hybridised characterisation of banana fiber has been reviewed. Keywords: Natural Fibers, Banana Fiber, Processing Technique and Surface Morphology.
