Thermal Properties of Hybrid Natural Fiber Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composites with SiC as Filler 2020-28-0460
Scientists and technologists attracted towards natural fibers like banana, cotton, coir, sisal, hemp and jute for the application civil structures and consumer goods. It was identified the electrical resistance, thermal and acoustic insulating properties for possessing of these natural fibers in composites. Natural fibers have many benefits compared to artificial fibers, as an example less density, less weight; low cost, specific properties and they are recyclable and biodegradable. There aren’t any skin effects because of high strength and stiffness, renewable. In alternative manner, there also are some limitations, as an example less thermal stability and wetness uptake. several of them studied a major improvement in properties of hybrid composites with reinforced with glass fiber in resin content however it’s naturally hazard with usage of this glass fiber content. There are many publications on review of fiber reinforced composites, a notable research has been done on natural fiber polymer composites but research on jute, hemp, hybrid of jute fiber and hemp fiber, hybrid (jute/hemp) fiber with SiC particulates as filler at specific extent fractions primarily.
In this paper, hybrid (hemp and jute) fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composites were fabricated by using hand lay-up technique of different weight percentage of hybrid fiber and SiC particulates as filler have been studied and their thermal properties such as density, Thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) by which we can know thermal stability of the composites
