Abstract

This
work
present
s
an
influence of various
fiber
loadings on
tensile
properties
and hardness
of
turkey
feather
fiber
reinforced polymer (
TF
FRP) composites.
T
he composites were fabricated using
a
compression moulding technique and a varying weight percentage of 20, 30 and 40
fiber
. The
composite plates were cut into test samples according to ASTM standard methods for ten
sile
and
hardness behaviors
.
From the result
s
obtained,
3
0wt%
TF
FRP composite sample recorded better
tensile
strength, when compared with other counterparts.
This was attributed to a better
fiber
-
matrix
interfacial adhesion
. The TFFRP composite recorded in
creased hardness value
when
fiber
loading was
increased from 20 to 40 wt%
