    Abstract: Catechu is a natural and biodegradable polymer. It is made up of catechin, tannic acid etc. The composites by using Acacia catechu, jute and polypropylene were fabricated by compression molding process. Jute fabrics (hessian cloth) reinforced polypropylene (1:1) composites as well as the jute fabrics soaked with different types catechu reinforced p... Show More
