Abstract

This paper presents the recent trends in the mechanical characterization of composite materials with different fillers materials to make it a hybrid composite. First, The different types of composites are fabricated by hand lay-up method, using 10% wt filler material with 50%wt glass fiber, rest polyster resin as matrix material. Hematite ore and chicken feathers are used as filler materials. Next, Specimens were cut and tested according to ASTM standards. The mechanical properties were studied viz:, tensile strength and bending strength of the material. Last, the results were compared for different filler material.
