Description The use of natural fibers as reinforcement for composite materials is on the rise due to the need to reduce environmental damage and manufacture sustainable products. One of the fibers used for this purpose is fique fiber. This article describes the manufacture of a student chair with fique fiber-reinforced composite material. To choose the amount of reinforcement to be used in the elaboration of the chair, the mechanical characterization of several composites with different percentages of the fiber was carried out, where it was found that both the flexural and tensile properties increased with a higher insertion of fique. The selected material was analyzed morphologically with optical microscopy, finding that there was good adhesion between the fiber and the matrix. A simulation with finite elements showed that the chair would resist a load of 100 kg. The student chair was manufactured using the Hand Lay Up technique with material composed of fique fiber and polyester resin.
El uso de fibras naturales como refuerzo de materiales compuestos esta aumentado debido a la necesidad de reducir el daño ambiental y manufacturar productos sustentables. Una de las fibras utilizadas para este fin es la fibra de fique. El presente artículo describe la fabricación de una silla estudiantil con material compuesto reforzado con fibra de fique. Para la elección de la cantidad del refuerzo a utilizar en la elaboración de la silla se realizó caracterización mecánica de diversos compuestos con diferentes porcentajes de la fibra donde se encontró que tanto las propiedades de flexión y tensión aumentaron con mayor inserción de fique. Se analizó morfológicamente con microscopia óptica el material seleccionado encontrándose que existe buena adhesión entra la fibra y la matriz. Una simulación con elementos finitos permitió evidenciar que la silla resistiría una carga de 100 kg. La silla estudiantil se manufacturó por medio de la técnica Hand Lay Up con material compuesto de fibra de fique y resina de poliéster
