ABSTRACT. In recent years, composite materials widely involved replacing the metals to increase the strength at minimal weight. Synthetic fiber reinforced polymer composites are widely used many application like aircraft, automobile etc. Due to increasing demand for the synthetic fiber, because of its light weight and easily biodegradable, Natural fiber are involved in achieving good strength to weight ratio. In present work sisal fiber reinforced polymer composite SFRP was used to replacing the two synthetic composite such as carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite CFRP and glass reinforced polymer composite GFRP. All laminates are fabricated by using hand layup method. The static mechanical properties of epoxy based SFRP, GFRP, CFRP and their hybrids laminates are experimentally evaluated as per ASTM standards and reported.
