Abstract: The desertion work describes the mechanical properties of new polymer composites consists of carbon fiber reinforcement, epoxy resin and filler materials like Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2 ), Silicon Carbide (Sic), Granite Powder, Aerosil (Fumed Silica) and Coremat. The fabrication method used was conventional hand lay-up technique. The mechanical tests carried out were Tensile Test, Hardness Number and 3-P Bending Test. The Tensile Test gave the results for Tensile Strength, Tensile Modulus & Strain. The Bending Test gave results for Flexural Strength, Flexural modulus &Interlaminar shear strength. The test result have shown that higher the filler material volume percentage greater the strength for ZrO2, Sic, Granite Powder, Aerosil and Coremat filled carbon epoxy composites.
Keywords: Carbon-Epoxy, Zirconium Oxide, Silicon Carbide, Granite powder, Aerosil (Fumed Silica), Coremat.
