Abstract

Dimer fatty acid-based polyamides (DAPA) are reinforced with cellulose fibres (CF) from 5 to 20 wt.%. Thermal, morphological, dynamic mechanical and mechanical properties of the corresponding biocomposites (DAPAC) are investigated. They exhibit a high increase in glass transition temperature (Tg) and a decrease in the crystallisation temperature and crystallinity degree. This can be attributed to carbonyl (DAPA) and hydroxyl (CP) groups' interactions. These hydrogen bonds reduce the polymer mobility. For instance, the dynamic mechanical spectra of these biocomposites reveal an increase in the stiffness and higher thermal-mechanical stability. Morphological observations reveal a moderate interfacial adhesion between the fibres and the matrix. With the increase of the fibre content, tensile tests show a high increase in Young modulus and yield stress, and a decrease of elongation at break. Predicted modulus results based on micromechanical models, Voigt and Reuss bounds and Halpin-Tsai approaches, are compared with the experimental values. They show that the Halpin-Tsai model can be used to quantify the mechanical properties for DAPA/CF biocomposites.
