Abstract
With advancements in the methods of research, the branch of Material Science has seen its extremes but there are some areas upon which much attention should be kept. One such area is the natural composite. Taking the ecological problems created by synthetic material into account, there is a need to search for the alternatives for which nature gives the answer which furnishes us with a wide variety of plant material with extraordinary properties leaving us to explore its engineering applications. This work focuses on the extraction of fibres from jute, coir and bamboo belong to this category. Fillers are used along with various commodities as well as engineering polymers to improve the properties of polymers. In this project bamboo fiber hybrid composites have been developed from polypropylene filled with fly ash of constant 10%wt Concentration. Concentration of fiber was varied up to 25 % by weight and the test specimens were prepared by Injection Moulding. Bending properties were tested by using tensometer and the Bending Strength, Bending Moment were increased with the increment of fiber weight % in the composition.
