Abstract
The method described in the present work was assessed through the production of composite materials made of polypropylene reinforced with chemical thermomechanical pulp of hemp core fibers. Composite materials were obtained by extrusion and injection molding, and by the addition of a coupling agent to ensure a good interphase between fiber and matrix. In all cases, the composite materials were considered as semi-aligned reinforced. Tensile strength was selected as a representative parameter and was studied by the Kelly-Tyson model.1 Since the original Kelly-Tyson equation was formulated for fully aligned reinforced composite materials, the present work uses a mo...
