Abstract:

The natural fiber composites in India based on a two pronged strategy of preventing depletion of forest resource as well as ensuring good economic returns for natural fibers. Kenaf & Abaca based composite developed as substitutes for plywood & medium density fiber boards. In this project natural fiber composites fabricated, by combining materials of Kenaf & Abaca in chopped form by hand lay method. In this composite, Epoxy resin used as a matrix material. The NFR composite made in different fiber volume fraction such as 17.5% of Kenaf and 17.5% Abaca, 35% of Kenaf, 35% Abaca. The mechanical properties of this sample investigated according to the ASTM standards. From the result it observed that the 35% of Kenaf and 35% of Abaca fiber reinforcement showed the highest tensile strength and impact strength respectively among the other fiber volume fraction.
