Abstract: The need for biodegradable materials is the motivation behind studying the hybridization effect of natural and synthetic fiber composite. In this study six different compositions of sisal and glass are studied. Mechanical properties viz. tensile and bending are evaluated and compared for different compositions. Glass used at core showed slightly higher tensile strength than at skin. Also, it is found that the flexural strength is highest for 4 sisal layers at core and glass at skin. Fatigue life evaluation of all glass and all sisal composition is also performed which shows better fatigue performance of all glass composition.
