Fabrication of Properties of Epoxy Resin by Adding Reinforcing Agent | Original Article
Fiber reinforced polymer composites are most important class of structural materials due to their numerous advantages. Reinforcement in polymer is either engineered or characteristic. Engineered fiber, for example, glass, carbon etc. has high quality however use of these fibers is restricted because of higher expenditure in production. Human hair can also be utilized as a fiber reinforcement material. An attempt has been made to study the utilization of human hair which is very economical and easily available for making different products. The mechanical properties of human hair reinforced epoxy composites are studied. The polymer composites with different concentration of human hair fiber i.e. 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% were analyzed and it was observed that there is significant influence of human hair reinforcement on the mechanical properties of composites.
