Abstract

This study related to the development of bio-degradable composites using areca nut frond fibers for use in low strength applications. The fronds are immersed in water for 72 hours to extract the fibers. The extracted fibers were treated with alkaline solution. The fibers are dried in ambient conditions for 24 hours. A biodegradable resin matrix was prepared using corn starch, water, plasticizers and impregnated with the treated short fibers in random orientation, poured into a mould and compacted for 10 minutes. The composites were extracted and allowed to dry for 48 hours. The tensile strength of the composite obtained was 45.29N.
