Abstract

In line with the rising environmental concerns, the synthetic fibres are replaced with the natural fibres in the recent past. Stem fibre from Muntingia calabura species is extracted using water retting method and its physico-chemical properties are investigated for the purpose of this study. The tensile strength of the fibre 416-872Mpa, cellulose content 68.51%, density 1.351g/cc, crystallinity index 47% properties were identified in the Muntingia calabura fiber is one of the good natural fiber that can be used as reinforced nonwoven materials different application.
