Technical Abstract: Soybean oil-based composites are prepared by Solid Freeform Fabrication Method. Modified soybean oil is solidified with a gelling agent and composites are formed through fiber reinforcement. Glass, carbon and mineral fibers are used in the formulations. The effects of curing agents, curing temperature, fiber combination and fiber loading on mechanical properties of composites are studied and reported.
