Abstract

In recent years advanced polymer material composites are used to manufacture a fishing boat in glass fiber with polyester resin. To enhance the properties of GFRP, in this work, cement was used as filler material with glass fiber - polyster resin matrix. The composites were fabricated by varying the weight percentage of cement in matrix material, 0 wt%, 5 wt% and 10 wt% respectively. The composites were fabricated by hand-layup process, following with compression molding. As per ASTM standards, the specimen were prepared and studied experimentally for mechanical properties. The results were compared for different percentage of filler material. It was observed that addition of cement lead to increase in mechanical properties of GFRP
