OBECTIVES:-

  • Produce needlepunched nonwovens from banana fibres using existing Banana fibre extractors
  • Test the needlepunched nonwovens for their physical and mechanical properties so as to find out samples with properties that compare favourably with commercially standard samples of polyester and polypropylene fibres.
  • To start with nonwovens of polyester and polypropylene which would be taken for study in present project would be interlinings in garments, geotextiles and filtration fabrics. Thereafter based on observed properties of tested nonwovens of banana fibre more substitutes of polyester and polypropylene nonwovens would be considered.
  • Study the chemical bonding process and biodegradation of banana fibres.
  • Detailed study of existing banana fibre extractor would be made to explore possibilities making improvements in design.
