- Cellulose (CE), sawdust (SD) and wheat straw (WS) were subjected to triethoxysilane (AS) and methacriloxy propyl trimethoxy silane (MS), and maleic anhydride grafted polypropylene (MAPP) to improve interfacial bonding with matrix. Composites were prepared by these fibers as reinforcement. Tensile tests results show that composites were significantly enhanced by employment of coupling agents and MAPP to be the most effective coupling agent. Mechanical properties of SD composites exhibit the best performance compared to CE and WS. Optimum conditions for coupling agents were found to be 1 wt % for silane coupling agents and 5 wt % for MAPP.
