Experimental study and Investigation of composite coir fibre in disk brake rotor


  • Nagarajan A




This research briefly describes the evolution of fibre composite in natural fibre as coir. The Innovative implementation of coir fibre in disk brake rotor. The fabrication process includes the production of composite base coated layes of epoxy resin along with material of reinforced polymer as silicon carbide as catalyst. Thus concluding with testing results the perfect strength of the coir fibre composite is derived.
