Description: Three closely related cellulosic acrylic latex films were prepared employing acacia pulp fibers, cellulose whiskers and nonocellulose balls and their respective strength properties were determined. Cellulose whisker reinforced composites had enhanced strength properties compared to the acacia pulp and nanoball composites. AFM analysis indicated that the cellulose whisker reinforced composite exhibited decreased surface roughness.
Keywords: A. fiber, A. polymer-matrix composites (PMCs), B. strength, nanocellulosics
