Abstract: The present paper researches the impact of differing fiber content and speed on tensile flexural, HDT and effect properties of characteristic fiber (sisal) fortified polypropylene composites (NF). The support fiber (Sisal-Fiber) was gathered from the foliage of locally accessible tree through the procedure of water retting and mechanical extraction. Poor adhesion among fiber and matrix is regularly experienced issue in characteristic fiber-strengthened composites and to conquer this issue, physical and substance medicines were performed for surface adjustment of fibers. The expansion of compatibilizer to the matrix like, is enhanced the adhesion attributes of the fiber. The outcomes it proposes that the high level of fibers combined with a higher screw speed improves the mechanical properties of the Sisal Fiber-Polypropylene plastic composite due to a high interaction between the fiber and the matrix and an even distribution of the fiber in the matrix.
