Abstract

Araucaria hunsteneii fibres were used as fillers in the manufacturing
of wood fibre-polypropylene composite. Fibre content of 5, 10, 15
and 20% and a MAPP addition of 3% were used in the study. The
results indicate that fibre content significantly affected the
mechanical and water absorption properties while with MAPP
addition no significant improvement was observed. Araucaria
hunsteneii fibres could be used as fillers in the manufacturing of
thermoplastic composite.
