Abstract
Fiber reinforced polymer composites have received widespread attention in the past four decades because of their high specific strength and modulus. In recent years, a significant amount of interest has been shown in the potential of natural fibres to replace glass fibre in composites. This is the alternative way which is more economical and can be very cost effective than using synthetic fibres. Although these fibres may not be as strong as carbon and aramid, their main advantages are low cost and biodegradability. The present research work has been carried out to make use of Bagasse natural fibres. The aim of this work is to describe the development and characterization of new set of hybrid natural fibre composites. Hybrid composites were prepared using bagasse fibres of pure epoxy compared with 1wt%, 2wt%, 3wt%, and 4wt% weight fraction ratios. Tensile testing at room temperature revealed that 3wt% of bagasse yielded maximum strength of 25.5 MPa other than 0 wt.% of bagasse. Hardness at room temperature revealed that 4wt% of bagasse composite shows maximum 67 HRB compared to other compositions. The reason may be the natural fibre distributed and dispersed uniformly across the epoxy.
