Definition of the noun Biocomposite
What does Biocomposite mean as a name of something?
- [materials science] A composite material comprising a resin matrix and a bolster to reinforce natural fibers, wherein either the resin or the bolster is of biological origin
Biocomposite is a composite material formed by a matrix and a reinforcement of natural fibers. These kind of materials often mimic the structure of the living materials involved in the process keeping the strengthening properties of the matrix that was used, but always providing biocompatibility. The matrix phase is formed by polymers derived from renewable and nonrenewable resources. The matrix is important to protect the fibers from environmental degradation and mechanical damage, to hold the fibers together and to transfer the loads on it. In addition, biofibers are the principal components of biocomposites, which are derived from biological origins, for example fibers from crops, recycled wood, waste paper, crop processing byproducts or regenerated cellulose fiber. The interest in biocomposites is rapidly growing in terms of their industrial applications and fundamental research, due to its great benefits.
