Abstract: This Research work explains the Mechanical properties of Flexural test, Tensile test, Impact test and SEM analysis of Sansevieria Trifasciata fiber (STF), Carbon fiber (CF)  hybrid polymer composites. The Hybrid Composite laminates were created with five different fiber % of STF (0%, 10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) and % of Carbon Fiber (100%, 90%, 80%, 70% and 60%). The manufacturing process was completed by hand layup technique. Mechanical properties of Hybrid Composite laminates were included to Tensile, Flexural and Impact testing. The SEM shows fiber debonding and de-lamination of fiber and resin can be observed. The explanation covers that Flexural, Tensile and Impact quality increases without affecting the extension of the Hybrid Composite with fiber extents.
Keywords: Hybrid Polymer Composite, Carbon Fiber, Sansevieria Trifasciata Fiber (STF), Mechanical Properties, and SEM Analysis.
