Description
The main goal of this research is maximizing the utilization of renewable materials in both the matrix and reinforcement, more importantly exploitation of waste material for biocomposite development and evaluating the mechanical, thermal and water resistance performances. Woven roving and chopped strand mat fiber glass, and hemp fiber mats are incorporated to an epoxy resin based matrix cured with novel hydrolyzed specified risk material (SRM) extracts. Aminophenyl sulphone (APS) is used as a control crosslinking agent for the epoxy resin. Results show that the biocomposites developed in this research exhibit promising flexural strength, tensile strength and tensile modulus; despite relatively poor moisture resistance. The use of waste protein hydrolyzate extracts, hydrolyzed proteins, as crosslinking agent of epoxy resins in making biocomposites is novel and promising and results can be extended to other proteinaceous biomasses as curing agent of epoxy resins.
