Composite materials are preferred in all engineering applications, because of their superior properties over the traditional materials. Among composite materials, Natural fiber reinforced polymer finds rapid development in industrial applications and many areas of research. In this paper, thermal properties of Sisal-Glass fiber reinforced epoxy composites are studied to assess the influence of different fiber orientation. Thermal properties of the composite are analyzed using Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) to investigate the influence of change in fiber orientation.
