Abstract

Among all the natural fiber, leather fiber is one of the animal fibers which is bearing hydrophilic and hydrophobic functional group. Leather is tanned with different types of chemicals and scraped crust leather containing chemical are coming from the leather industry after preparing footwear and leather products. In this was varied from 100 ml to 40 ml and benzoyl peroxide was used as a radical initiator. Tensile strength (TS), Young modulus and elongation at break (Eb) were measured. Tensile strength found to increase from 9.80 Mpa to 10.85 MPa. Young's modulus was found highest in 70:5 ratios and it was 158.16 Mpa research an attempt was taken to prepare composite with waste scrape crust leather. Leather fiber reinforced polyester resin based composites were prepared by wet layup method. Polyester content in the composite.Scraped crust reinforced composite will reduce the environmental pollution. So it can be concluded that scraped crust leather reinforced composite found to have better result than matrix and reinforced material.
