Development and Analysis of Hybrid Polymer Composite from Bagasse and Coconut Coir
Abstract: Lot of research is going on today in the field of material science to develop newer materials. Natural fibres are getting much attention of researchers, engineers and scientists as reinforcement in the epoxy matrix to develop natural fibre reinforced epoxy composites. In the present work an attempt has been made to develop a systematic approach to evaluate tensile impact and hardness strength of coir and bagasse fiber reinforced hybrid composites. The composite panel was fabricated using hand lay-up method to the size of 300mmx200mmx10mm of natural fibres namely coconut coir (5 wt %) and bagasse as a fibre (45 % by volume) reinforced in epoxy resin. The test criteria determine modulus, percentage elongation, ultimate strength, hardness and impact strength.
