Due to increasing environmental concerns natural fibres are once again being considered as reinforcements for polymer composites. This present work evaluated the effect of mechanical properties of hybrid (carbon+flax) fibre reinforced epoxy composites. In this work hybrid (carbon+flax) fibre is used as reinforcement which treated with NaOH solution for enhancing the bonding strength between fibre and resin by removing moisture contents. Samples of hybrid (carbon+flax) fibre reinforced composites were fabricated by compression moulding and investigated their mechanical properties. The work of this experimental study has been carried out to determine the mechanical properties due to the effect of hybrid (carbon+flax) + carbon) fibre with orientations as 00/900 orientation. The results of this study indicate the orientation 00/900 gives better mechanical properties when compared with the other orientations.
