Now-a-days, natural fiber reinforced polymer composites are increasingly being, used for varieties of engineering applications due to their many advantages. Among natural fibers, both banana and flax fibers are used for many such applications due to its availability.The attractive advantages of natural fibers are their low cost, light weight, renewability, biodegradability, short growth cycle and high availability. The objective of the present research work to study the mechanical behavior of banana -flax fiber reinforced with soya resin based composites. Samples of banana, flax and banana- flax fiber composites were prepared by using hand layup method .Samples were cut in flat bar shape specimens from the manufactured laminate according to Tensile Testing standards which is to be performed under Universal testing machine (UTM),Tensile strength of laminates are observed. Finally, the Scanning Electron Microscopy ( SEM ) of fractured surfaces has been done to study their surface Morphology.
