Abstract
The development of renewable and eco-friendly materials as an alternative to non-biodegradable and non-renewable materials that pollute the environment is the primary focus of research in the rapidly developing world. In this work, three composites layers are manufactured utilizing cotton stalk fibre and sorghum stalk fibre as the primary supporting materials and epoxy pitch as the framework to expand the viability of the regular fiber. The composite samples are made using the hand layup method and have various fiber volume fractions. These natural fiber composites have been subjected to testing for tensile, flexural, impact, flammability and water absorption test. Beginning ideal length and weight not entirely settled. The testing of the mechanical properties yields the results, which are then compared across each of the three combinations. The epoxy matrix composite with cotton stalk and sorghum stalk fibre as reinforcement has the highest tensile, flexural, and impact strengths. Additionally, this composite has a lower capacity for water absorption.
