Natural fibers reinforced bio-degradable composites are good alternative for conventional materials. Natural fibers are cheaper in cost, environmental friendly and biodegradable. In the present work composites are made using short Banana fibres and natural rubber. Composites are prepared using vulcanizing technique at 1500c. And composites obtained were determined for mechanical properties like tensile strength, tear strength were studied. The effect of different lengths of fiber content with natural rubber were determined .also matrix fiber interface were studied using SEM.
