Use of Natural Fiber-Reinforced Polymers in the Automotive Industry: A Comprehensive Review
Keywords:Automotive parts; composite materials, polymers; natural fibers; reinforced polymers.
In this research work, an in-depth review of natural fiber-reinforced polymers and their applications, mainly in the production of automotive parts, is carried out. These materials have some properties that can meet the new regulations established to protect the environment. This article shows the properties of some polymers, natural and an-made fibers, and the polymers reinforced with them, thus forming a new composite material and the parts made from these materials. It also mentions the leaders in the automotive sector and the plastic parts used in different vehicles.
