Paper Title:
Tensile and Flexural Behavior of Hybrid Banana Pseudostem/Glass Fibre Reinforced Polyester Composites
  Abstract

Natural fibre-based thermoset composites are generally lower in strength performance compared to synthetic thermoset composites. Hybridization with some amount of synthetic fibre enhanced the mechanical properties of the composites. This study focused on the performance of mechanical properties of hybrid banana/glass fibre reinforced polyester composites. Hybrid composites with different volume ratios of banana to glass fibre were prepared. The reinforcing effect of both fibres in polyester is also evaluated in various fibre loadings. Results showed that both flexural and tensile properties have been improved with the increasing level of overall fibre content loading. Tensile and flexural strength shows great enhancement by the introduction of a slight amount of glass fibre to the banana fibre polyester matrix.
