Abstract :

The usage of composite materials saw a sudden rise during the sixties, when glass fiber in combination with tough rigid resins were produced on large scale as it has many advantages over materials like synthetic and fiber glass as reinforcement. The present review paper emphasizes on natural fiber based polymer composites. It can be generally seen that the fibers possess high tensile strength and it is confirmed from various studies that the tensile strength of the composite varies with the amount of fibers, thereby causing these fibers to be reinforced in a polymer matrix for manufacturing various kinds of products used in day to day life. In recent times, the car manufacturers are interested in incorporating natural fiber composite for the parts, some of which are already in use which serves to lower the overall weight of the vehicle which in turn increases the fuel efficiency, there by seving two major purposes. Hence, on account of the advantages of the natural polymer composites rendered to manufacturing industries, a brief overview on the general properties and various techniques adapted to manufacture these composites is highlighted in this paper. Certain tests on natural fibers like rice and coir has also been conducted to prove their mechanical properties.
