In the present technological aspect, the innovation and development need to be better in order to meet the needs of present practical application and by having a balance in economic and environmental factors. The reinforced composite is a widely used polymer in recent days. These materials have efficient mechanical characteristics which include strength, heat resistant, good conduction, resistance to correlation, and are rigid in nature. When a reinforced composite is combined along with other natural fibers the outcome of these composite will meet the requirements that are expected from them. In this research paper, the mechanical characters of Arecanut Palm along with epoxide composite and fiber-reinforced polymer composite are utilized. the composite is fabricated using the stir casting method. According to the American Society for Testing and Materials, the obtained composite has been crushed into a small composite for the purpose of other experiments. The specimens to be utilized for the experiment have undergone certain checks like hardness, mechanical testing, and density test. The fiber-reinforced polymer along with areca nut palm fiber showed a significant result in hardness, density, flexural strength, and tensile strength. The obtained composite has been fabricated with 10wt% of reinforced areca nut palm epoxide composite. The structure of the fiber and its matrix has been analyzed using SEM analysis.
