Abstract
The study deals with the analysis and characterization of chicken feathers (CFs) based thermoplastic composites. The performance of the composite has been characterized in terms of mechanical properties which have been related to the fibre-matrix compatibility of the composite components analyzed by FTIR and SEM. The results have shown that the addition of short CFs as a filler to the PP thermoplastic matrix did not significantly improve the mechanical properties. A slightly increase of the stif...
