Abstract

Among the various synthetic materials that have been explored as an alternate to iron and steel for the use in automotive, plastics components claim a major share. At present, due to uncertain conditions in the disposal of plastic there is a need to search for its alternate, which is nothing but natural fibers. It is interesting to note that natural fibers such as jute, coir, banana, sisal, etc., are abundantly available in developing countries like India, Srilanka, and some of the African countries. The application of the composite material grown steadily and which occupied the new market. In our daily life, the composite materials are used in different field because of their combinational properties. The main reason for using the composite to reduce the weight of the material and easy. In present investigation natural hybrid composite is developed using Sisal/E-glass (S/G), Jute/E-glass (J/G) and Sisal+Jute/E-Glass (SJ/G) 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 impact and hardness properties.
