Abstract:

In this paper, a biocomposite is developed by using bio-degradable and lignocellulosic fibre such as Jute and watermelon as reinforcement materials. Epoxy is one of the most commonly used materials and here we use commercially available epoxy resin LAPOX L12 along with hardener LAPOX K6 as matrix material for the fabrication of different plates. Synthesis of the watermelon fibres was carried out using a high energy ball mill. Both jute mat and watermelon filler are treated with 5% Sodium Hydroxide solution for an hour at ambient temperature. For the processing of matrix, we used a ratio of 10:1 for resin and hardener respectively. The matrix is reinforced with watermelon filler reinforcing by using a mechanical stirrer at 750 rpm for 30 minutes at room temperature. The biocomposite is processed using different weight percentages of jute mat fibres and watermelon filled epoxy polymer matrix by hand lay-up technique followed by compression moulding. The thermal behaviour of surface treated watermelon filled epoxy composites were compared using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA).
