Nano Carbon, Sisal Fibers


The main objective of the project is to develop the natural fiber composites primarily to explore value application avenues. The natural fiber composites is developed in India on the basis of two pronged strategy of preventing depletion of forest resource and also ensuring good economic returns .Borassus and sisal based composites material with the addition of Nano carbon have been developed substitutes for plywood & medium density fiber boards. In this project the natural fiber composites were fabricated by combining materials of sisal & borassus in copped from hand lay method. Epoxy resin was used as the matrix material. The composite material with and without Nano carbon have been prepared with borassus & sisal fiber reinforcement. The mechanical properties of these samples were investigated according to ASTM standards. From the result it was observed that the borassus and sisal fiber reinforcement with Nano carbon showed that the results are increase in the tensile. Strength, flexural strength& impact strength has been compared to without addition of Nano carbon composite material has been observed.
