Nowadays, the search for ecological correct, sustainable and good mechanical performance materials is very frequent. Sugarcane Bagasse is a kind of industrial waste without an appropriate environmental allocation. The bagasse is incinerated or disposed of in inappropriate places, contributing to increased pollution. In this context, the use of bagasse fiber as a reinforcing agent in polymer matrices is an alternative ecologically correct to a final destination. Thus, the aim of present study is available the thermal behavior of sugarcane bagasse fiber and epoxy and polyester composites reinforced with these fibers. Were performed Tests thermo-acoustic, thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry and dynamic mechanical. The results showed that the fibers and composites are thermally stable up to about 200ºC and composites needs of temperature for complete cure. In addition, polymer composites reinforced with sugarcane bagasse fiber can be applied under conditions with temperature variation up to 200ºC.
