ABSTRACT
Thermosetting and thermoplastic resins are becoming widely accepted alternate materials in engineering industry. Industries seek alternate materials stalling from containers to aircraft parts for reducing weight and increasing durability. Mere resin based plastic components may not fulfil these requirements. Fiber materials are added in composites to increase the strength, whereas filler materials are generally inert materials which are added to reduce material cost and to improve the mechanical properties such as hardness and wear resistance to some extent, hi this paper the effect of carbon fibre, silica and fly-ash particulate addition on the tensile and impact behaviour of polyester and epoxy resin are investigated. The composite laminates were fabricated by hand layup method and cured in room temperature. Tensile and impact properties are increased on addition of carbon fiber up to 30% by weight. Addition of fly-ash particulate and silica in micron sizes decresed the tensile and impact strength.
