Abstract: Nowadays polymer composites are emerged material which is used for extensive variety of applications because of their exclusive and beautiful characters. They have high durability, high strength-to-weight ratio and abrasion resistance. In this study the mechanical characteristics of coir and wood dust particle reinforced polyester composites using hand layup process were analyzed. The prepared composites were characterized using Scanning Electron Microscope and also the mechanical behaviors such as tensile strength and flexural strength were estimated using computerized testing machine.
Keywords: Coir, Wood Dust, Tensile Strength, Flexural Strength.
Scope of the Article: Composite Materials
