Glass fibres have the principal advantages such as high tensile strength, high chemical resistance, low cost, and excellent insulating properties which makes them an important constituent in fibre reinforced plastic and composite industry. In this study, E-glass fibre in the form of Chopped Strand Mat (CSM) with different weight fractions such as 15%, 30%, and 45% were used as reinforcement in CNSL-epoxy resin composites. Fabrication of the composites was done by hand layup technique. Micro-hardness, tensile and flexural properties were investigated for all the composite panels of different compositions. The results clearly indicated an improvement in micro hardness, tensile and flexural properties with the increase in fibre content.
