Abstract: This paper out of the blue surveyed the Hardness Properties of Hybrid Composite of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) and Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP). These composites are generally utilized for some businesses, for example, aviation and car enterprises. Blend of the two composites to upgrade mechanical properties and lessen cost which results in progress, for example, elastic, compressive and shear properties has likewise influences other critical property, for example, hardness. Hardness testing with smaller scale hardness analyzer utilizing pyramid shape indenter at 136° had been performed to examine the connection and impact. The examples utilized were carbon fiber fortified polymer (CFRP), glass fiber strengthened polymer (GFRP) and cross breed piece of CFRP and GFRP utilizing seven different plan. All hardness information was set up to demonstrate the positioning of hardness esteem among the examples utilized. Hardness investigation was talked about to display the finding got. The point of the examination is to explore the distinctive game plan of CFRP/GFRP with respects of its hardness, and benchmarking with other mechanical properties, for example, Modulus of Elasticity, E and Tensile Strength, UTS of half breed composite, demonstrated that hardness esteem for mixture composite fall in the middle of the CFRP and GFRP hardness individually.
