Abstract:
In this study the Mechanical Properties of Coconut coir Fiber is reinforced with epoxy resin with different lengths (5mm,10mm,15mm) of coir fibers and by treating the fiber with NaOH by fraction of 5 %. All samples were made using hand layup technique and specimens were made of rectangular shape as per ASTM standard D3039. The samples were tested according to ASTM D3039 standard using Universal testing machine (UTM) .The significant findings of the research showed that NaOH treatment improved the tensile properties and hardness of the composite further Increase in length of fibers was found to increase the tensile strength. The maximum tensile strength was found for 15 mm length of coir fibers.
