Mechanical Behaviour of Glass Fiber Reinforced with Human Hair and Jute 2020-28-0409
Reinforced composites are the most widely used type of polymer composites. As in the presence of these reinforcements, the polymer may yield relatively better mechanical properties. Recently, the reinforced composites are prepared as a combination of natural and synthetic fibers. Natural fibers can be obtained in abundance and also possess properties like unique chemical composition, low density, slow degradation rate, high durability, etc. which makes them suitable to use as a reinforcement material. Also, one of the main reasons for wide research and use is the cost-effectiveness of these sandwiched composite laminates. This paper deals with the comparison of conventional GFRP with sandwich of GFRP with discarded Human Hairs and Jute by using Epoxy Resin 6022 and Hardener 4111. Further, the destructive testing of all the samples is performed and the results are compared with GFRP which describes that Impact Strength of GFRP-J is increased by 13.53% and density of GFRP-HJ is decreased by 24.2%.
