The apparent shear strength at the interface between a bamboo fiber and a PLA matrix is quantified. A method for processing pull-out test samples within a controlled embedded length is proposed and the test procedure is presented, along with a critical discussion of the results. Untreated and mercerized bamboo fibers, from the same batch and embedded in the same matrix, are compared. The fiber–matrix interface before and after the test is observed to identify the failure mode of each sample, especially as regards the occurrence of fibrillation in the fiber bundles.
