Kenaf fiber has been cultivated as an industrial crop. In this paper, we present the ongoing works of an assessment on the mechanical properties of its fiber composites. Tensile, flexural and impact tests were executed on untreated short kenaf fiber reinforced epoxy composites. Its fiber content is varied from 5% up to 20%, and was compared to neat epoxy (NEAT). Using a hand lay-up technique, a mixture of kenaf fiber and epoxy is poured into a mould and left to dry at room temperature for 24doi:10.15282/jmes.10.3.2016.2.0208 fatcat:syrscptlv5fcpeht7nv5a3ujya
