Abstract

An increasing ecological consciousness in society has led to the development of materials with a lower environmental impact. PLA is a biodegradable polymer with higher mechanical properties than polypropylene. There are a few important works published about PLA-reinforced biocomposites in which satisfactory results were obtained. A good interphase generation when around 30% reinforcement percentages are extruded is, nowadays, an unsolved fact. The main objective of this study is obtaining ...
