Abstract
Researchers are concentrating more and more on the development of Natural Fibre-Reinforced Polymer Composites (NFRP) as environmentally friendly and sustainable due to its biocompatibility, high specific strength, low heat conductivity, and biodegradability, which make it a potential material for use in engineering and medical devices. These composites can be used to replace conventional metals and non-metals (synthetic) such as glass, aramid and carbon. Composites reinforced with natural fibres can be utilized as an environmentally friendly alternative to synthetic materials since natural fibres are inexpensive in cost, less weight, renewable, need little energy to manufacture and are biodegradable. This study focuses the development of FRP composite by combination of natural fibres. The raw materials of palm fruit fibre and sisal fibre is chosen as reinforcement material and epoxy resin as adhesive. Mechanical characteristics of this proposed FRP material to be experimented for different material combination. These composites may be employed in a variety of practical applications such as carpets, geotextiles, dartboards, baskets, shoes, bags and masquerade dresses. The results found that the composition of specimen 2 exhibited greater flexural strength 89.879 MPa, 1.4% elongation, 1.25 joules of impact strength and hardness 19.29HV respectively.
