Abstract

Unbleached kenaf fibers were selected for the manufacture of magnetic paper using chemical coprecipitation method. This method involved precipitation and loading of nano-sized ferrite particles into the lumen of the kenaf fibers. While the degree of loading depended on both the degree of agitation and temperature of the coprecipitation, the thermal stability of the produced magnetic paper depended mainly on the temperature. The magnetic particles deposited on the fiber surface had detrimental effects on the strength of the produced paper. The coercivity value of the magnetic paper depended on the type of ferrite produced from the coprecipitation.
