AbstractThe present work reinforces material for polymer composites alternative to the use of Epoxy resin LY556, Glass – Woven and Chopped. The hybrid composite material is a combination of two or more different types of fiber in which one types of fiber balance the deficiency of other filler. Iron powders are used as a filler material. The composite laminates were fabricated by varying weight percentage of 0, 1, 3, & 5 of Filler material using hand layup technique. The mechanical properties of the prepared composites materials were characterized in terms of tensile strength and impact (Izod) tests as per ASTM standards. At addition of 3 wt. % of iron powder the tensile strength was improved by 44% and impact strength by 94.2% when compared with neat polymer composites. The reason for the enhancement was wonderful interfacial bonding with fiber and polymer matrix.
