AbstractWe have obtained composites on the basis of dry bamboo powders and in turn several binders, including polyethylene (PE) and alkoxysilanes. The composites were studied by Fourier transformation infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), optical and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). Some mechanical properties were determined along with thermal stability by thermogravimetry; water absorption was also determined. FTIR results show formation of primary chemical bonds between bamboo surface active groups and the binders. Mechanical property improvement goes symbatically with the thermal stability.
