The aim of this work is to study the influence of sisal fiber content on mechanical (i.e. tensile, flexural, impact, hardness and abrasion resistance) and thermal (i.e. TGA) properties of composites by varying the fiber and epoxy percentage. The composite was prepared by the melt-mixing method, followed by compression molding process. The percentage of sisal fiber is varied from 4% to 10% in steps of 2%. Similarly epoxy content is varied from 96% to 90% in steps of 2%. Detailed mechanical Properties of Sisal Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites have been studied. The major mechanical properties viz Tensile, Hardness, Impact, Flexural, Moisture absorption, and Moi...
