    MATERIALS CHRACTERIZATION: 1. Tensile Testing: Tensile test for composites was conducted according to ASTM D 638 - 99, with a Universal Testing Machine (Zwick Co.). Tensile test was carried out at crosshead speed of 50mm/min at room temperature. 2. Izod Impact Testing: In order to measure the work of fracture (WOF), the Izod impact test was carried out.Impact bars were obtained by cutting specimens in rectangular shapes. These rectangular specimens are of thickness 3 mm, width 12 mm and length

    PHASE BEHAVIOR:- Melting Point:- The temperature at which polymer transmit into crystalline form to determine the melting point. The polymer of low-molecular substance exist very low melting point and this happened when polymer chain is dispersed. In physical state melting point is very difficult to calculate. Polymer will decompose at high temperature rather than melts. It is also known as crystalline melting temperature. Glass Transition
