Abstract: The exploration of different materials is at its peak nowadays. This pace has not only gone towards discovering new material but inventing new, by making composites of different materials. Now this stream has gone into making composites of different polymers to make them suitable enough to compete and overtake metals. In this study, Polypropylene Copolymer (PPCP) is mixed with Glass Fibre Reinforced Polyester (GFRP) to form the Recycled PPCP or RPPCP. Further, a composite material is formed by the amalgamation of RPPCP and Recycled Glass Fibre (RGF) in different proportions. These samples of different proportions are created and tested in weatherometer and DSC analysis. In both of the tests, the outcome has been in favor of the sample with 70% RPPCP and 30% RGF proportion of the composite.
