  • Abstract The work describes the manufacturing and tensile static behaviour of natural fibres produced with novel extraction techniques. The fibres are extracted using two new methods, one consisting of immersing the blades of the Agave leaves in water for 10–13 days in a container, and another sustainable extraction process during which the Agave leaves are buried in earth for 90 days. Single fibre tensile tests have been performed at four gauge lengths to assess the effect of the gauge length… CONTINUE READING
