TL;DR: In this paper, a critical review on the physical and chemical treatment methods that improve the fiber-matrix adhesion and their characterization methods is given, as well as a detailed characterization of these methods.
Abstract: An Important aspect with respect to optimal mechanical performance of fiber reinforced composites in general and durability in particular is the optimization of the interfacial bond between fiber and polymer matrix. The quality of the fiber-matrix interface is significant for the application of natural fibers as reinforcement for plastics. Since the fibers and matrices are chemically different, strong adhesion at their interfaces is needed for an effective transfer of stress and bond distribution throughout an Interface. A good compatibilization between cellulose fibers and non-polar matrices is achieved from polymeric chains that will favor entanglements and interdiffiusion with the matrix. This article gives a critical review on the physical and chemical treatment methods that improve the fiber-matrix adhesion and their characterization methods.

TL;DR: In this article, a short fiber reinforced composite used in rapid prototyping and manufacturing (RP&M) was modified by incorporating several different property modifiers including the short glass fiber, plasticizer, and compatibilizer.
Abstract: Addressed in this paper are critical material property issues related to the short fiber reinforced composite used in rapid prototyping and manufacturing (RP&M). Acrylonitrile–butadiene–styrene (ABS) copolymer has been a popular choice of material used in fused deposition modeling (FDM), a commonly used RP&M process. However, conventional ABS polymers in the filamentary form for FDM are known to be of low strength and hardness. In order to overcome this deficiency, ABS was modified by incorporating several different property modifiers including the short glass fiber, plasticizer, and compatibilizer. Glass fibers were found to significantly improve the strength of an ABS filament at the expense of reduced flexibility and handleability. The latter two properties of glass fiber reinforced ABS filaments were improved by adding a small amount of plasticizer and compatibilizer. The resulting composite filament, prepared by extrusion, was found to work well with a FDM machine.
