The main purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of sisal fibre loading on mechanical properties of jute fibre reinforced epoxy composite. The hybrid sisal /jute fibres reinforced epoxy composites are prepared by hand lay-up technique at different loading of fibres. Scanning electron microscopy is used to study the interfacial studies of prepared composites. A positive effect of hybridization is observed in this study. The results show that mechanical properties (tensile test, flexural test and impact test) of hybrid composite increase with increase in fibre loading up to 30 wt.%.
