In this material the research is focused on preparation and characterization of PLA/RS and PLA/Kenaf cost –
effective polymer composites as constructive materials for houses and offices.
The technological procedure for production of PLA/RS and PLA /kenaf fiber composites was determined. Kenaf /
PLA and PLA/RS preforms were molded by thermo compression in a closed mold. Various kinds of preforms
with different thickness, specific weight and fiber / matrix ratios were molded.
The composites have been constructed as multiple prepreg layers (2 or 4 layers) in the mold cavity,
depending on the thickness of the starting performs and in accordance with the targeted
thickness. The composites were cured at 175 OC for 20 minutes, under pressure.
The basic physical and mechanical properties of the composites were tested.
