Jute and glass fiber reinforced low density polyethylene (LDPE) composites were prepared using compression molding technique at 120°C with various percentage of fiber content. Thermal, optical and electrical properties of both composites were studied in this article. Thermal analysis of the composites confirmed the better thermal stability of glass fiber LDPE composites than that of the jute composite. Superposition of the absorption of LDPE and glass fiber in the composites has been confirmed by the peak and line shape of absorptions. The absorption peaks also indicates a better conjugation between the elements of composites. Electrical studies suggest that for both composite capacitance decreases with increase in frequency and voltage, which suggests good electrical properties of LDPE based composites.
