- A novel environmentally friendly composite was prepared with short-chopped grass segments (SGS) and starch by hot-pressing method. The effects of ratio of raw materials and hot-pressing temperature on the performance of composites were studied. Results showed that the tensile strength increased with the increase of starch content. When starch content was 50%, the tensile strength of composite was 3.24 times higher than that at 20% starch content. The tensile stretch first increased and then decreased with increasing starch amount. Stretch at maximum tensile force of composites was very near tensile stretch. This indicated that SGS/starch composites have low toughness. The hardness of composites at any starch content showed certain fluctuation and lay between 80 and 92. The tensile strength of composites first increased and then decreased with increasing hot-pressing temperature. When hot-pressing temperature was 140 , tensile strength arrived at 3.21 MPa.
