Manufacturing of Natural Fibre Reinforced Polymer Composites
They reported that majority of the work
related to natural fibre composites used conventional composite manufacturing pro-
cesses such injection moulding, compression moulding, resin transfer moulding
(RTM), vacuum infusion moulding , and hot press processes.
