3.1 Introduction

Synthetic fibers and fillers are extensively used as good reinforcement materials in various polymeric composites. Prodigious reinforcing materials along with synthetic fibers are abundant sources of natural fillers to produce hybrid fibers reinforced polymeric composites. The synthetic fibers are classified into glass, kevlar, and carbon fibers. They have high strength, stiffness, length‐to‐weight ratio, and good fire resistance. These fibers are high in cost and cause pollution when they are brought out. The various fillers ...
