Paper Title
Performance Analysis of Vinyl Ester Polymer Composites Reinforced with Banana Fibers
Todays world is in much need of innovations in quality of materials to prevent material failures in components. To fulfil that a special type of materials known as composite materials are introduced. The composite materials have improved in properties when compared to conventional materials. A proposal is made in this paper to work with Fiber reinforced composites with Vinyl ester as matrix and untreated Banana fibers as reinforcement to investigate the properties enhanced out from the Composite materials. The usage of natural fiber reinforced composites may innovate for various new compositions, where the properties are studied by performing various mechanical tests. Moreover, the banana fibers are well available around everywhere. The resin vinyl ester, generally is highly versatile, with the strength higher than polyester and is being cheaper than the other resins. The composite materials were fabricated using compression molding technique in order to have a quick action and to have uniform fiber distribution. The tests like tensile test, water absorption test, and Impact test are conducted to study out the properties.
