An experiment al study has been carried out to investigate the tensile and flexural characterization of polymer hybrid composites made by reinforcing Jute and Pineapple leaf fiber as 1:1 ratio into a epoxy resin. The fiber content in the composite was varied from 20 to 40 by volume percentage and the variation of mechanical properties such as tensile and flexural properties in each case were studied. The tensile strength increased with increase in fiber content. Further, the Flexural strength of the composite increased with increase in fiber content.
