The purpose of the research is to obtain composite materials with high structural, thermo-mechanical and / or tribological performances, according to ecological norms and international requirements in order to replace the existing classical materials, setting up current, innovative and high performance solutions, for applications in top areas such as automotive industry and not only. The objective of the research is to develop new fully / partially biodegradable composite materials by using new natural fibers and those recovered from various wastes. The research aims to obtain some composites with matrix of various types of polymeric materials and the reinforcement phase of textile materials (of different natures) so that the resulting products to be biodegradable. The textile inserts used as raffle are ecological, non-toxic and biodegradable and they contain (divided or in combination) bast fibers (flax, hemp, jute) and other vegetable fibers (cotton, wool) as plain yarn or fabric, which can replace the glass fibers, commonly used in polymeric composites.
