epoxy resin, kenaf fiber, flax fiber, hybridization.
The possibilities of traditional materials such as metals and their alloys are so exhausted that even when using the most modern techniques it may be difficult to achieve the highest material characteristics and thus higher performance parameters, the durability and reliability of the proposed structures and equipment. Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites have many merits, such as high stiffness to weight ratio and strength to weight ratio, advanced fatigue and corrosion resistances, etc., The objective of present work is to evaluate the mechanical properties of flax fiber and kenaf fiber reinforced with epoxy as matrix and also evaluate the mechanical properties of hybrid composite. The mechanical properties such as impact strength and hardness of composites are examined. The specimens are prepared by using the Hand Layup fabrication technique. Experiments are conducted to investigate the mechanical properties such as Impact test, Rockwell hardness test. The hybrid composite has obtained high properties such as toughness up to 12.6j/mm2 Hardness up to 69 HRB.
