Hybrid materials of any class are essential for current demands. This paper deals with the hybrid effect of composites made of jute/E-Glass fibers which are fabricated by hand layup method using LY556 Epoxy resin and HY951 hardener. The properties of this hybrid composite are determined by testing like tensile, flexural, impact, and inter laminar shear strength which are evaluated experimentally according to ASTM standards. The result of the test shows that hybrid composite of jute/ E-glass fiber has far better properties than that of jute fiber composite. However, it is found that the hybrid composite has better strength as compared to jute fiber composite fabricated separately with glass fiber.

Abstract


Hybrid materials of any class are essential for current demands. This paper deals with the hybrid effect of composites made of jute/E-Glass fibers which are fabricated by hand layup method using LY556 Epoxy resin and HY951 hardener. The properties of this hybrid composite are determined by testing like tensile, flexural, impact, and inter laminar shear strength which are evaluated experimentally according to ASTM standards. The result of the test shows that hybrid composite of jute/ E-glass fiber has far better properties than that of jute fiber composite. However, it is found that the hybrid composite has better strength as compared to jute fiber composite fabricated separately with glass fiber.
