Abstract: Over past few decades composite materials, ceramics and plastics have been leading emerging materials. The applications of composite material and the area in which they are being used is growing day by day. The curiosity has gained substantially towards the use of natural fibres in composites in recent few decades. Natural fibre composites are eco-friendly and often used in engineering application such as in construction, automobile, aerospace and household applications. Nano fibres are responsible for a connection between the Nano scale and the macro scale, since their diameters are in the nanometre range and the length is continuous. Nanofibre are attracting very high interest due to their extraordinary micro and Nano structural characteristics, high porosity, mechanical strength, Flexibility and integrally large total surface area. There is increased curiosity about natural fibre based epoxy composites properties to short out engineering necessities. Hence, a matter of concern to overview and check the exiting position and put efforts for sustainable and possible commercial exploitation and additional improvements. This research work shows comparison of strengths with and without added Nano fibres to the Banana fibres composite. Testing data clearly indicates the enhancement in mechanical properties when Nano fibres are added in to Natural fibre reinforced composite.
