Abstract: In recent years, there has been a growing need for natural fibre reinforced composite materials especially materials with good mechanical properties in order to substitute glass fibre based composite products to showcase a better engineering class for structural applications. Here the properties of jute fabric reinforced composite has been compared and analysed with e-glass fibre matte reinforced composite. The mercerized jute and e- glass fibre mats are treated with isophthalic resin. Charcoal powder has been used as a filler material constituting two percentage of the whole weight of entire composite. Isophthalic polyester resins offer substantially higher strength, better flexibility and chemical resistance. The properties of the jute composite and e-glass composite are determined by a series of tests such as Tensile, Flexural, Impact, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Rate of Burning tests. The newly obtained composites provide a better usage for applications that require a much better physical strength and mechanical properties.
