Abstract

Composite materials are made of two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties, that when combined, produce a material with characteristics different from individual components. In this research a natural fiber and hybrid composite which has two or more than two different reinforcement fibers inside the matrix. The interest in natural fibers was generated due to the high material, processing cost, toxicity and specific gravity of the synthetic fibers. In this research the Areca nut coir, Coconut coir & Baggase fibers are extracted by water retting and mechanical method. The fibers are treated with alkali solution (NaOH). Then the glass mould of dimension 200×150×3mm is prepared. Fabrication is done by hand lay-up method. Fabrication is carried out for different composition of natural fiber and synthetic fiber (glass) by reinforcing in epoxy matrix. The tests were carried out according to the ASTM standards to determine mechanical properties of the fabricated specimens.
