Composite structures, that are one of the most critical materials of today, are being improved day by day with high performances besides their lightness. Textile reinforced composite structures constitute a key share among all composite forms. In these structures, textile components provide strength and dimensional stability to the composite material. In this study, the effects of different types of Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT, MWCNT-OH,MWCNT-COOH) on mechanical properties (tensile strength and impact strength) of jute/E-glass fabric reinforced hybrid composites were examined. Unsaturated orthophthalic polyester resin was used as the matrix material. Vacuum assisted resin transfer molding technique was utilized for the preparation of four-plied composite specimens. In sample codes, J and G refer to jute and E-glass fabrics, respectively.
