Abstract:

The present research focuses on the mechanical and thermal characterization of natural fibers, Curau, reinforced composites with respect to produce a low density composite material that can be used in extreme environment conditions such as low and high temperatures. The Curau plant is well-known in the Amazon Water Basin in the western region of Para State Brazil with excellent mechanical and physical properties. Experimental tests under different conditions will be performed to characterize this composite material manufactured with different Curau fiber concentration.
