Accepted 8th May, 2014


The objective of the work is to produce low cost green composites using indigenously available natural fibers/waste and resins. Utilizing the agro waste banana, baggage and sisal are raw material and polyvinyl alcohol as resin for manufacturing of composite material.  Composites are combination of at least two distinctly different materials, which combined together provide an engineering performance that by far exceeds those of any individual component. It is the quality of the interface between the components that determined the mechanical and chemical performance of the composites. The agro waste composite materials are ecofriendly, economically fit as well as disposable material.
