Abstract

Natural fiber composite is obtained from nature in the form of leaf, seeds, tree and fruit wastage from these are used for the manufacture of composite materials to deliberately combine to form heterogeneous structures with desired properties. This is also called reinforced polymer composite materials. The natural fiber reinforced polymer composite is rapidly growing both in terms of their industrial applications and fundamental research. Before scientists have created many natural fibers from different materials (coir, hemp, flax, kenaf) they also determined the physical properties of these composite materials. I have created the composite material using the fiber of Palm tree and I have found the mechanical characteristics like tensile strength, hardness, impact strength, water absorption and flexural rigidity of the composite materials. Our material is used to manufacture the automobile body, construction board, insulation board, plywood, flooring, and manufacturing of chair and seat etc. This Palm is in abundant is available it is weightless material and has desired strength, low specific gravity.
