The serious discussion about the continuity of natural resources has led to regenerate interest regarding biomaterial with the focus on renewable raw materials as the replacement of synthetic materials. Natural fiber composite (NFC) is gaining the attention of researchers and academicians due to its role to resolve the current ecological and environmental problems. Bamboo fiber has demonstrated its hydrophilicity which was similar to distinct natural fibers, it absorbs a meaningful amount of moisture. Adding filler polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to epoxy matrix covered the weaknesses adhesion of bamboo-matrix, showed the suitability of thermoplastics to a thermosetting matrix to the ultimate mechanical property of bamboo composite.
