Abstract

Today the use of composite material in the manufacturing field is increasing day by day. The composite material consists of two or more different forms of material. The natural fiber like sisal, hemp, jute, flax, and silk plays an important role to enhance the properties of composite material. In the present work polyester is used with natural fiber i.e. sisal and hemp. The composite material (Polyester & Sisal fiber and Polyester & Hemp fiber) having weight percentage polyester 90% & sisal fiber 5% + hemp fiber 5%, polyester 90% & sisal fiber 7.5% + hemp fiber 2.5% , polyester 90% & sisal fiber 2.5% + hemp fiber 7.5% respectively. The fibers are treated with NaOH and water solution. The specimen of composite material are manufactured by hand layup method. The mechanical properties such as tensile, flexural and shear strength are calculated and analyzed. In this conclusion SF 7.5% + HF 2.5% is better than SF 2.5% + HF 7.5% and SF 5% + HF 5% in tensile strength , flexural and shear strength.
