The aims of the study are to characterize and evaluate the physical and mechanical properties of continuous unidirectional kenaf fiber epoxy composites with various fiber volume fractions. The physical-mechanical properties, such as color, tensile strength, and moisture regain (MR), are the main characteristics that influence the processing and performance on the final products from kenaf fiber. The results showed that 40% fiber loading improved the tensile strength properties and WSK fiber treated with 4% NaOH was found to enhance tensile and flexural properties compared with untreated fiber. Gum, as the important noncellulosic tissue present in kenaf fiber, has a close relation with downstream processing and product properties, so the predominant task in pretreatment of kenaf fiber for textile application, retting, is to remove gum including pectin, hemicellulose, lignin, and other impurities without damage to cellulose fiber. Kenaf chips were defiberated under 3 to 7 bar for 3 and 5 min. Results indicate that UD kenaf fibers reinforced composites display better tensile and flexural properties as compared to woven and non‐woven mat reinforced hybrid composites. In order to see the effects of fiber surface chemical treatment, sunn hemp fiber was treated with sodium hydroxide (NaOH) agent. Kenaf (Hibiscus Cannabinus L.) fibres are thermally and alkali treated to enhance the interfacial bond between the fibre-matrix, the mechanical properties of the fibre itself, the fibre-reinforced thermally activated alum sludge ash (AASA) and the nanosilica (NS) blended cementitious composites. The water retting method produces finer fibres between 3.2 to 3.7 Tex while other methods produces fibres between 4.0 to 5.0 Tex. 3.3. Kenaf is an important bast fiber because it is biodegradable and has other ecofriendly characteristics.
