Abstract

In the present report, we purposed a new mechanical method to obtain micro fibers from the bamboo. The data mining method was also used in order to elucidate the fiber quality from the factors obtained. As a result, it is clear that a shearing mechanical method is effective to obtain fine micro fibers from the bamboo. Keywords: bamboo micro fiber, shearing mechanical method, data mining, natural board, hot press forming. 1 Introduction Recently, problems have emerged because of the negative impact of the industrial products on the environment. Bamboo fibers have attracted attention because of a fast growth among various kinds of renewable natural fibers. There are previous reports dealing with the bamboo fiber reinforced plastics (BFRP) [1]-[4]. However, the used plastics, including BFRP
