Abstract: In this paper fabrication of carbon fiber-based hybrid composite was carried using graphene and industrial waste (Fly-ash) as filler material in different percentages. Fly-ash was chosen as it is a major industrial waste. The graphene possesses various functional properties that made good interfaces with epoxy and carbon fibers. Fillers (graphene and fly ash) are considered to improve the reinforced strength, surfacing characteristics, toughness of the reinforced composite plate like structure. Properties like compressive strength, tensile strength, hardness and impact strength of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) with fillers are tested. The change in the properties of CFRP composites attributable to mechanical interlocking of graphene and fly-ash with epoxy and fiber was observed.
