Abstract: In this study, fabric woven using 3D braided flax yarn is used to reinforce Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) composites. Solid braiding technique is used to convert the typical yarns into braided yarn and further these yarns are used to prepare woven fabric. Finally, composites are fabricated through layer stacking method using hot-press hydraulic compression moulding machine. Compression and shrinkage tests are performed on the braided composites. The braided flax fiber composite results are compared with the as received PLA polymer results. Results showed significant enhancement in the compression properties of PLA composites due to the braided fabric reinforcement. These properties are further increased with the increase in filler content respectively. Thermal shrinkage of the braided flax fiber composites is lower than the PLA polymer. This is due to the higher thermal sustainability property associated with the braided flax fiber. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
