Experimental Research on Musa Sepientum and Hen Egg Shell Hybrid Reinforced Composite Material

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
A hybrid reinforced composite material which composite comprises banana fiber modified to powder form, egg shell modified to fine powder ,the said powders of said natural fibers being mixed in a matrix of bio epoxy resin using a catalyst to effect complete mixing of the said powdered fibers to yield the said hybrid reinforced composite, the said hybrid composite capable of being molded to any geometrical object, the said composite having a low water retention property with retention being in a
