Abstract: A hybrid reinforced composite material which composite comprises banana fiber modified to powder form, egg shell modified to fine powder ,the said powders of said natural fibers being mixed in a matrix of bio epoxy resin using a catalyst to effect complete mixing of the said powdered fibers to yield the said hybrid reinforced composite, the said hybrid composite capable of being molded to any geometrical object, the said composite having a low water retention property with retention being in a range of 14-23% with a soaking time of 120hrs. Before and after chemical treatment in both with and without moisture, the young’s modulus varies from 12321.5241 N/mm2 to 25779.2532 N/mm2 , the flexural values varies from 17.4 N/mm2 to 25.5 N/mm2 , impact strength varies from 12.6 J to 20.9 J ,% of elongation varies from 5.6% to 10.1%.
Keywords: Banana Fiber, Hen egg shell, Bio epoxy resin, Material properties.
