Fiberglass is widely used in the preparation of materials such as bus bodies, aero planes, chairs, tables, in the preparation of various instruments etc. The reason for such important applications of fiberglass is that it is hard like steel and iron materials but have advantage over these that it is not rusted. It has also low weight like plastic materials. It can also be recycled and reused. In our current study we have prepared various samples of Fiberglass by hand lay –up operation method and studied the mechanical properties of these samples using Universal Test Machine. The effect of changing concentrations of various constituents is studied.
