Abstract
Epoxidized soybean oil has not been evaluated as a composite matrix to create high performance composites A. Natural fibers and nanoclay particulates will be evaluated as matrix additives to the epoxidized soybean oil. B. The purpose of this study is to evaluate an extrusion based freeforming process to align the fibers and obtain improved mechanical properties.
