The replacement of synthetic fibers to natural fibers has been the subject of intense research, particularly as applied in composites. Astrocaryum vulgare is an important palm tree employed for many people along the Amazonian region in handcrafts and other products, by traditional manipulation techniques. The aim of this work is to perform a density Weibull analysis of Astrocaryum vulgare (Tucum) fibers with different diameters. The results obtained may be a database of Astrocaryum vulgare fibers, helping future research that will addresses its application potential as an alternative fiber applied in polymer composites.
