Abstract: Green composites are the materials which are made up of natural fibers and biodegradable matrix materials, which have the ability to replace the non-biodegradable, petroleum-based products. In this study, the focus is to develop the fully biodegradable green composites in which matrix material is selected as Polylactic Acid (PLA) reinforcement with jute and sisal fiber using hand layup followed by a compression molding technique. Composites are developed with different volume fraction from 25% to 50% and different temperature from 165°C to 195°C. Furthermore, the study of the failure mechanism of the tested specimens will be done with the help of a scanning electron microscope (SEM).
Keywords: Hybrid composites, Sisal, Jute, Volume fraction, Heating temperature.
