Abstract

The unique and diverse characteristics of composite materials have increased their utilization worldwide, from featherweight fly fishing rods to high performance airplane parts, the use of fiber reinforced composite materials is becoming more popular due to their high strength to weight ratio combined with easy manufacturing methods. Fiber reinforced polymer matrix consists of reinforcing fibers and polymer resin. The fibers are considered as the main load carrying constituent of the composite, while the role polymer matrix is to transfer and distribute the load between fibers as well as provide corrosion resistance, damage tolerance and thermal environmental stability. Here, the primary objective is to determine mechanical and chemical properties of glass/epoxy composite with asbestos as filler material in different percentage. The composite is manufactured by hand-layup process. Specimens were cut and tested according to ASTM standards. The mechanical properties were studied viz, tensile strength, bending strength, impact strength and hardness of the material. The results were compared for different percentage of filler material.
