Abstract

Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) isolated from kenaf bast fibers were used to reinforce unsaturated polyester resin (UPR) composites toughened with liquid epoxidized natural rubber (LENR). The surface of the CNCs was modified with silane, and the effects of this treatment on the morphological and mechanical properties of the resulting composites were studied. Morphological studies revealed that the size of the LENR particles increased with increasing filler content. Tensile tests indicated that the blend's tensile strength and elastic modulus could be further improved by incorporation of the CNCs and treated CNCs. The high crystallinity and surface area of CNCs were the main factors for improvement of tensile properties of the blend. Moreover, the impact energy of the UPR improved when it was modified with the LENR, and even further improvement was achieved with both unmodified and modified CNC addition to form nanocomposites.
