Abstract
Natural fibers have been investigated for use in polymers including flax, hemp, jute, sisal and banana. Recently there has been a greater leaning towards natural fiber reinforced polymers composites because these are environmental friendly and cost effective to synthetic fiber reinforced composites. In this work hand lay-up process is used to fabricate Jute- glass fiber reinforced polyester composites. Specimen preparation and testing was carried out as per ASTM standards. Composites were prepared using Jute - glass fibers of 50/50, 40/60 and 30/70 Weight fraction ratios and mechanical properties like tensile, impact and flexural strength of Jute - glass fiber reinforced polyester were evaluated. The results shows that tensile strength and impact Strength of 50% Jute-50% glass fiber composition is found to be better than the other two compositions and the flexural strength of 40% Jute-60% glass fiber composition is found to be better than the remaining two compositions.

Key-Words / Index Term
Jute fiber, glass fibre, epoxy resin, hardener.
