Polymer materials synthetic fibers, for example, glass and carbon gives point of interest of high stiffness and strength to weight proportion when compare with conventional construction materials, for example wood, cement and steel. The accessibility of natural fibers and comfort of manufacturing have attempted researchers to try locally accessible inexpensive fibers and do study for their feasibility of strengthening purpose. Accordingly, many researchers do broad study on the properties of polymer matrix composite. The synthetic fiber substituting with the natural fiber for example, jute, sisal, pineapple and bamboo. The natural fiber removed by retting and manual procedures were exposed to soluble base treatment. this study is concerned with the investigation of mechanical properties of Grewia Optiva and jute fiber with epoxy resin matrix-based polymer composites. study investigate the tensile, bending and abrasion behavior of composites material made by grewia optiva and jute into epoxy resin. result shows that the better tensile strength of Grewia optiva fiber composite.
