Abstract

Bamboo fiber is a natural fiber that is easily degraded by microbes and potentially becomes an alternative fiber in the future due to its availability, which is abundantly cheap, and grows throughout the year and also isn’t affected by the season. The application of bamboo fiber is a solution for environmental issues and a business prospect of synthetic fibers that are expected to decrease in line with petroleum. This study presents result of the studies of various types of bamboo, fiber extraction process both mechanically and chemically, composite fabrication based on various matrices, characterization carried out to reveal performance related to the requirements of various applications, weaknesses and improvements. Based on the result of this study, the researchers obtain information related to development and research status of bamboo fiber along with the application and weakness, as well as opportunity to make some improvements.
