Abstract

Among the various synthetic materials that have been explored as an alternate to iron and steel for the use in automotive, plastics claim a major share. During the last decade, the study of filled plastic composites has simulated immense interest in meeting the shortage of plastic materials. Plastics find an extensive application as they have less weight, low water absorption, high stiffness and strength. At present, due to uncertain conditions in the shortage and the cost of petroleum, and it’s by products, there is a need to search for its alternate, which is nothing but natural fibers are cheaper, bio-degradable and have no health hazard. Furthermore natural fiber reinforced fibers are seen to have good potential in the future as a substitute. Natural fibers are extracted from various plant parts and classified accordingly. In present investigation natural hybrid composite is developed using Sisal, Jute and E-Glass as reinforcing material and Epoxy as a matrix material. To sustain the environmental condition and water absorption, E-Glass is used. The fabrication is done using hand layup technique. The developed hybrid composite will be subjected to different kind of test to determine mechanical properties. The result shows that the Sisal hybrid composite has good mechanical properties compared to other hybrid composite.
