Keywords: nano-silica

An important issue for all composites is reduction of creep. The reinforcing fibers dramatically reduce creep, however nano-composites can improve tensile properties and toughness. The aim of this work is to prepare and characterize PLA combined hemp-fiber and nano-silica composites.
