Abstract

Over the last century polymers have emerged as one of the most indispensible components used in everyday life, epoxy being one such example. Until recently synthetic filler materials have been the preferred choice for reinforcement of epoxy to improve its toughness. However natural filler and fiber materials are emerging as suitable alternatives to synthetic materials for reinforcing polymers such as epoxy due to their environment friendliness, high abundance, renewability and cost effectiveness. The present work deals with mechanical behavior of egg shell reinforced epoxy composites. Composites samples with 0, 10 and 20% weight fraction of egg shell are made using hand layup method. The fabricated composite materials were cut according to the ASTM standards for different experiment, such as flexural test and Vickers hardness test and water absorption test. It is observed that maximum flexural strength and Vickers hardness number is obtained from the composite sample made up of 20% ESP. Water absorption percentage increases with increase in filler content.
