Evaluation of Mechanical Properties of Groundnut Shell & Date Palm Powder Reinforced Polymer Composite

B.G.S. Veerendra, U. Anil Kumar


The modern world can’t been imagined its development without involving the concept behind advancement in composite material. The numbers of researches are going on composite material in order to achieve desire standards. The hybrid composite have been emerged and have potential reinforcement for composites and hence gains attraction for further researches. This is due to their application for which are more benificial offer low cost, low density, tensile strength etc. The present work is on development of roofing sheet material using date palm and groundnut shell particle reinforced polyester composite. Previously, it was proven that groundnut shell particle reinforced composite is applicable to roofing sheets.  This project’s main motive is to add the date palm seed powder to groundnut shell particle reinforced polyester composite to show the variation. These hybrid composites are fabricated by using hand layup method. Three samples are prepared named “A”,”B”,”C”. In which sample A is only with groundnut shell particle, sample B & C are fabricated with different proportion of groundnut and date palm seed powder. Specimens were cut from the fabricated material according to the ASTM standard for different experiments for tensile test, hardness,


and impact test.  This review aims to show the improvement in properties by adding date palm seed powder to the composite material.
