Abstract: Kevlar fibres are para aramid fibres rather than Meta-Aramid structure of Nomex. These fibres have high tensile strength, tensile modulus and heat resistance .Kevlar is about five times lighter than steel in terms of the same tensile strength. In fact, it is the strongest textile fibre available today. It is therefore used in Radial tyres, Conveyor belts, Aircraft parts and mainly used in Ballistics and Frictional products. The aim of this investigation is to increase the mechanical properties of composite material of Kevlar fibre. The Kevlar fibre is reinforced with the banana fibre,which is a Natural Fibre and Aluminium Mesh using Epoxy resin. The Mechanical Properties of Newly formed Composite material using Kevlar Fibre is improved and find its application in a higher position while comparing to the Kevlar Fibre.
