However, the treated fibers were more likely to be damaged during processing. The synergy between PHB bioplastic and agave natural fibre was investigated in the presence of an organic peroxide through one step reactive extrusion processing. In the making process of composites, the bottom ash was mixed into the polypropylene matrix by stirring at a speed of 20 rpm for 30 minutes. The mechanical and physical properties of sisal fiber not only depend on its source, position, and age which will affect the structure and properties but also depend on the experimental conditions, such as fiber diameter, gauge length, strain rate and test temperature. Tensile tests were conducted to evaluate the influence of the reinforcement configuration on the mechanical properties of the composites, considering two arrangements: woven fibres in (0°/90°) and randomly arranged. Samples of sisal powder‐reinforced composites were developed using different percentages by weight of sisal powder content (2.5%, 3.75%, and 5%) in order to analyze their mechanical properties (tension, deformation, rigidity, Young's modulus (MOE), breaking energy, and tenacity) and water absorption. alkaline treatment of sisal fibres with various concentrations and result obtained. An expected reduction in tensile strength of PHB was found with the addition of 25 wt% of agave fibre due to the reduction in crystallinity induced by the treated agave fibre.
