Abstract: This paper focus on Madar and Bauhinia Racemosa fibers has high potential as reinforcing agents in polymer composites. The composites plates were fabricated by hand layup method with varying the fiber weight percentage of 5%,10%,15% and 20% on mechanical and water absorption properties are analyzed. The mechanical properties of such as tensile, flexural and impact properties of madar and Bauhinia Racemosa fiber mat reinforced polyester composites were studied at first time in this work. The tensile, flexural and impact strength of Bauhinia Racemosa fiber mat reinforced polyester composites had proved higher strength performance than the madar fiber mat reinforced polyester composites.
