Abstract

As the usage of composites increase, more and more interests over the fibers of the composites are aroused. Fibers have dominant roles over the properties of composites. The compatibility of fibers with the polymer matrices is another important issue. In today's technology possibilities, after the choice of the fiber type in a composite, there are many methods used for the surface modification of fibers to perform a proper composite material and increase the quality of the last product. In this chapter, physical, chemical, and biological methods used in the surface modification of fibers of the composites are discussed. The key points are arranged according to the fiber properties and the resulting composite's strength and usefulness.
