Abstract

Hybrid composites are manufactured by combining two or more fibers in a single matrix. Hybrid composites can be made from artificial fibers, natural fibers and with a combination of both artificial and natural fibers. Hybrid composites can help us to achieve a better combination of properties than fiber reinforced composites. The constituent fibers in a hybrid composite can be altered in a number of ways leading to variation in its properties. The importance of this review can be attributed to the significant aspects of natural fiber based hybrid composites, which are found to be predominantly affected by factors, which include variation in fiber volume/weight fraction, variation in stacking sequence of fiber layers, fiber treatment and environmental conditions. Effect of water absorption on tensile strength of the laminates and increasing tensile strength.
