Characteristics of Hybrid Composite with Graphite as Filler

Chethan M, Vinod Kumar C.S


Trial study is completed on the impact of graphite fillers on mechanical properties of jute and E-glass fiber fortified epoxy cross breed composite.Composites were readied utilizing hand layup technique with weight rate of graphite as filler material differing from 0%,2.5%,5% and 7.5% with 3 layers of jute fiber and 4 layers of E-glass fiber as support.The resultsshowed that the mechanical properties of the composites predominantly rely on upon scattering state of the filler particles, molecule size and total structure. Significant change in bowing quality of the composite after expanding the filler substance was watched and the ductile property is additionally expanded.
