What is it about?
Natural/synthetic composite hybrids combine the light-weight, environmentally sustainable characteristics of natural fibres with the ridigity, mechanical and chemical durability of synthetic composites. Here, fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite and carbon-reinforced polymer (CRP) composite laminates containing flax fibre, carbon fibre and carbon/flax hybrid composites were compared with regards to their drill machinability using the water jet drilling method.

Why is it important?
Hybridisation between natural and synthetic fibres is a technique in which the benefits of each material can be combined to achieve a composite that demonstrates both high mechanical performance and improved environmental impact.
