Abstract

Composite materials have been widely used in the world and in all industries such as automobile, aircraft and transportation, marine, chemical, electrical, mechanical civil engineering, building construction, electronics & telecommunication and etc. Defence is one of the key users of composite materials, particularly in rockets or missiles and others. In the field of composite materials the fiber reinforcement composite consisting of one fiber is used for long time and this results will have appeared for certain area, because use of single fiber consisting of limited properties. To overcome this problem the use of another fiber is made. This results in the form of hybrid composite. In this project basalt and glass fibers are used as the hybrid composite fibers and the characteristics of both the composite materials have been discussed here. Polyvinyl ester is broadly employed in many FRPCs and class of thermoset materials helps a unique balance of mechanical properties and chemical properties. For polyvinyl ester based fiber laminates, the typical reinforcements are glass and basalt fibers (bidirectional) are used to enhance the overall composites laminate properties. By account of Titanium dioxide as the filler with the fibers (Composite material), it provides high ultimate strength, ultimate strain, opacity, durability and avoid cracking in the composite material.
