AbstractThis paper studies the phenomenon of fiber alignment during the extrusion process. The fiber alignment is largely dependent on shapes of dies and the compression as well as the shear force generated in the extruder. The fiber alignment orientation, of course, would lead to direction dependency of the tensile properties of fiber-reinforced cement (FRC) extrudates. Such a dependency has been investigated in present study. It is found that when fiber volume ratio is small, say 1% of the glass fiber, the majority of the fiber can be aligned in the extrusion direction. As a result, the tensile strength of the thin plate along the extrusion direction is much higher than that along the transverse direction. When the total fiber volume ratio is increased to 2% or 4%, the fiber volume along the transverse direction is largely increased although the percentage of the fiber aligned along the extrusion direction is still higher. Thus, the tensile strength at a transverse direction can be significantly enhanced. In fact, the tensile strength of the samples along the transverse direction is almost the same as that along the extrusion direction when the fiber volume ratio reaches 2%. Furthermore, the strength of the sample at the extrusion direction does not increase proportionally to the fiber volume ratio. For the comparison purpose, plain sheets without any fibers have been prepared by both casting and extrusion. Mechanical properties of the sheets have also been tested and the test results show that extrusion process and fiber addition do have effects on enhancing the tensile properties. Polymer coating on the surface of the samples has also been used to improve the tensile properties of the extrudates with low fiber volume ratio, which shows some promising results. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd.
