Abstract
Hybrid natural fiber polymer composites are gaining popularity day by day because of the renewability, sustainability, availability, and cost-effectiveness of natural fibers. Hybridization of fibers for different polymer matrices may be done in different ways like a combination of both natural fiber and synthetic fiber, and a combination of two different natural fibers. The aim 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 with and without crab shell powder as filler material. The mechanical properties such as tensile strength, flexural strength of composites is examined by varying the weight of crab shell powder by 5 grams, 10 grams, and 15 grams. Experiments are conducted to investigate the mechanical properties such as Tensile test, Flexural test. The hybrid composite with 5 gms of crab shell powder filler material has obtained high properties such as tensile strength up to 232.8 MPa. and flexural strength up to 100.2 MPa.
