6 PLA/Kenaf spare tire cover made by Toyota
Spare tire cover in Toyota RAUM (2003) made from kenaf fibre reinforced PLA (based on sugar beet) LCA on the spare tire cover showed reduced CO2 emissions volume by as much as 90 % compared to conventional petroleum-based plastics Index 100 Carbon neutral effect 50 Petroleum based plastics Bioplastics (Anonym, 2007 )

7 Problem: Impact Bast fibre reinforced composites mostly display high stiffness and tensile characteristics But: impact characteristics are often the limiting factors for a use as construction materials due to the force elongation characteristics of the bast fibres

8 Load-strain curves of different cellulose fibres
Tensile strength, N/mm² Hemp Cotton Lyocell 800 700 600 500 Lyocell fibres combine high elongation and high tensile strength 400 300 200 100 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Elongation, %

9 Impact strength of different composites
Kind of fibre Charpy impact strength of composites in kJ/m² Charpy impact strength of neat PLA in kJ/m² Reference 40 % hemp 10 24 (Graupner, 2009) 40 % flax 11 15 (Oksman et al., 2003) 40 % kenaf 9 (Graupner, 2008) 40 % cotton 29 40 % Lyocell 40 30 % Cordenka 70 16 (Bax & Müssig, 2008)

10 Lyocell as additive for impact improvement
Unnotched Charpy impact strength Mixing 50 % hemp and 50 % Lyocell fibres increased the impact strength clearly (Graupner, 2009)

11 Production of Lyocell/PLA composites
Reinforcement: 3 kinds of Lyocell fibres (industrially gained fibres based on 100 % cellulose, density: 1.5 g/cm3) produced by Lenzing AG (Lenzing, Austria) in different fineness (15.0, 6.7, 1.3 dtex) Matrix: Nature Works™ PLA polymer 6202D, density: 1.24 g/cm3, melting temperature °C, glass transition temperature: 60-65°C (Topkapi) (Packaging International)

12 Production of semi-finished parts
Production of multilayer webs and needle felts with fibre loads of 20 and 40 mass-% and a mass per unit area of 2000 g/m² Single layer web Fibres Positioned multilayer web Needle felt Carding machine Cross layer Needle felt machine (Müssig, 2001)

13 Compression moulding Pre-cut parts of 300 x 250 mm2 were compression moulded (Rucks, Glauchau, Germany) Pre-heating at 180°C for 10 min Compression moulding with 3.2 MPa at 180°C for 10 min Aluminium slats as spacer (thickness: 2 mm) Demoulding at approx. 60°C

14 Results: Characteristics of 3 kinds of Lyocell fibres for composite production
Fibre width, µm Tensile strength, N/mm² Young´s modulus, N/mm² Elongation at break, % Lyocell 1.3 10.5 46.7 5260 15.3 Lyocell 6.7 23.3 30.9 3744 13.0 Lyocell 15.0 32.5 23.0 3013 11.9 Clear influence of fibre fineness on mechanical fibre characteristics

15 Results: Tensile strength of composites made from multilayer webs vs
Results: Tensile strength of composites made from multilayer webs vs. needle felts Influence of fibre fineness can be seen Composites made from the needle felts show significant higher tensile strength compared to composites made from the multilayer webs

16 Results: Reduction of fibre mass content of the multilayer webs
Tensile strength Reduction of fibre mass content of the multilayer webs lead to increased tensile strength of the composites

17 Results: Impact strength of composites made from the multilayer webs
Unnotched Charpy impact strength Increasing impact strength with raising fibre mass content Composites with a low degree of compaction No significant influences whether multilayer webs or needle felts were used

18 Results: SEM micrographs of tensile fractured surfaces
40 % Lyocell 1.3 multilayer web/PLA composite 40 % Lyocell 1.3 needle felt/PLA composite 20 % Lyocell 1.3 multilayer web/PLA composite

19 Results: Influence of process parameters of 40 % Lyocell multilayer web / PLA
Tensile strength: 42 N/mm² Young´s modulus: 4142 N/mm² Impact strength: 33 kJ/m² Tensile strength: 82 N/mm² Young´s modulus: 6784 N/mm² Impact strength: 40 kJ/m² - 10 min pre-heating, 180 °C - 10 min compression moulding 180 °C - 10 min pre-heating, 180 °C - 10 min compression moulding 180 °C 3 h pre-drying, 105 °C - 20 min compression moulding 180 °C (Graupner, 2009) Clear inluence on: compaction Process parameters coating of fibres with matrix interfacial interactions between fibres and matrix

20 Summary, conclusions & outlook
Lyocell fibres have great potential as reinforcement (high tensile strength and high elongation at break) Lyocell and PLA fibre are processable with conventional textile and formpressing techniques Semi-finished textile products and process parameters have a clear influence on the composite characteristics Compression moulding times and temperatures as well as the influence of pre-drying and pre-heating are important factors Full potential of Lyocell fibres could not be achieved due to suboptimal process parameters using multilayer webs Needle felts lead to better composite characteristics than multilayer webs An optimised production leads to Lyocell/PLA composites which show high impact properties combined with good tensile characteristics
