In general, epoxy resins are known for their excellent adhesion, chemical and thermal resistance, unique mechanical properties and excellent electrical insulators. The various fibres are incorporated into epoxy resin matrix materials. With the prepared samples, the fibre tests are passed. The results of the investigation are also taken into account due to the strength of the connection between the fibre and the matrix. The aim of our research is the preparation and subsequent testing of epoxy-based composite materials during their manufacturing operations, specifically by casting technology. The properties of fibre-reinforced composites depend significantly on the choice of fibre and matrix, and how they are combined, the fibre-matrix ratio, the fibre length, its orientation, the thickness of the composite and the presence of a bonding agent to improve fibrematrix bonding.


Keywords –Epoxy resin, High-strength fibres, Composites, Manufacturing, Environment.
