Misri, Sairizal and Ishak, Mohamad Ridzwan and Salit, Mohd Sapuan and Leman, Zulkiflle (2015) Filament winding process for kenaf fibre reinforced polymer composites. In: Manufacturing of Natural Fibre Reinforced Polymer Composites. Springer International Publishing Switzerland, Cham, pp. 369-383. ISBN 9783319079431; EISBN: 9783319079448


In this chapter, a study on filament winding process for kenaf fibre reinforced polymer composite manufacture is presented. Filament winding process for conventional fibre composites is discussed. Advantages and disadvantages of filament winding process are also briefly covered. A review on filament winding from various research is also performed. Brief review of filament winding of natural fibre composites is provided. The chapter also describes work on improvement of existing filament winding process and fabrication of hollow shaft made from kenaf fibre reinforced composites. The main contribution was the use of drum-type resin bath and surfacing veil, and these had facilitated ease of fabrication of kenaf yarn fibre reinforced unsaturated polyester composite hollow shafts.
