Effect of Graphene Addition on Sisal-Glass Epoxy Composite
Natural fiber or synthetic fiber can be utilized separately as reinforcing fiber in traditional composites. Sisal is a natural fiber which possesses high strength to weight ratio, durability, ability to stretch in which they are primarily used in applications where the materials must withstand extreme environments such as aerospace, automotive industries. To enhance the natural fiber reinforced composite's (NFRC) mechanical qualities A sisal-glass hybrid composite made from graphene was created using woven glass fiber. Glass and sisal fibers serve as reinforcement materials, and epoxy L-12 serves as the matrix phase. The matrix is also injected together with reduced graphene oxide (rGO). Chemical processing was used to remove the cellulose from raw sisal fiber. The compositions used for the tests are (85% - 15%) with 0.5 weight percent, 1 weight percent, and 5 weight percent rGO added by compression moulding process. In order to assess the mechanical qualities, tests for impact, hardness, and thermal conductivity are performed.
