Abstract : In the current work epoxy resin is chosen as matrix, treated Sacharum offinarum ( SugarCane) fiber, filler millet(Ragi) filler is chosen as reinforcement. Room temperature cured Epoxy System filled with Sacharum offinarum fiber and filler millet (Ragi) filler is synthesised by mechanical shear mixer, then kept in a Ultra sonic Solicitor for better dispersion of filler millet (Ragi) filler in the matrix. Different weights of modified filler millet(Ragi) filler (1,2,3,4,5 gm wt) has been incorporated into the Epoxy matrix in order to study the variation of Mechanical and Thermal properties. Mechanical properties like Flexural strength, Tensile strength and impact strength of the micro hybrid composite are studied by UTM (Universal Testing Machine). Thermal properties of micro hybrid composites are studied using Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC).
Keywords : Treated Sacharum offinarum, filler millet(Ragi).
