Recent interest in lignocellulosic fibres was devoted to improve the mechanical properties of polymers. But one of their main limitation is the poor compatibility and adhesion between these polar/hydrophilic fibres with most commercial resins being non-polar and hydrophobic. This problem has been partially solved using physical and chemical surface treatments, and/or the addition of a coupling agent (phase compatibilization). So better interfacial adhesion was found to further improve the rigidity and strength of polymers. But several applications may need more elongation/elasticity/impact strength where a compromise must be made. This is where hybrid composites come into play: by a careful selection of two or more different types of "additives", a good balance between stiffness and strength is possible. But for industrial processes, another important issue is the cost. This is...
