Abstract

Modern technology requires materials with distinctive combination of properties to meet the requirements that is not met by conventional metal alloys, ceramics and polymer materials. Synthetic fibers such as E-Glass, carbon fibers are widely used due to their high stiffness and strength to weight ratio. These had a proclivity to reduce due to high cost and increased environmental awareness which have diverged attention towards organic/natural fibers composite adding advantages such as low cost, ease in availability, low density, enhanced energy recovery, co2 neutrality, biodegradability and satisfactory mechanical properties as well. Commonly used organic fibers are coir, jute, banana, sisal, kneaf, pineapple, cotton, hemp. Natural fiber composites are employed in transportation, military, building, packaging, consumer products and construction industries for ceiling panelling, partition boards etc. The paper deals with review of research conducted on coir fiber reinforced polymer composites in its enhancement of properties based on various dominant factors.
