The industrial use of Synthetic fibre has been continuously increasing. In the interior of cars, pipelines, the percentage of fibre-reinforced multi-material parts may reach 40%.Synthetic fibres are important reinforcement materials in modern composites for high performance applications primarily due to their high specific strength and high specific modulus. However, the environmental unfriendly production method of synthetic fibres is an area of concern. Amid the growing global awareness and push for environmentally friendly products, the need to seek viable alternatives    materials    for synthetic   fibres   has   been   rising. Modification of natural fibres to rival the mechanical performance of synthetic fibres has been looked into by many research.
