This research investigated the micro-structural characterization of sisal/jute hybrid fibre reinforced polymer. Sisal/Jute hybrid polymers composite are of low cost, light weight, and possess satisfactory mechanical properties. In this research work, hand layup technique was used to produce the hybrid composites using percentage combination of sisal and jute fibres at a ratio of 33:67, 67:33, 50:50 in the form of laminates prepared with unsaturated polyester at different orientations of 90o?90o 90o?0o, 45o?-45o. Optical microscopy (OPM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) tests were carried out on the samples. The micro-structures of the sisal/jute hybrid were observed to have a good interfacial bonding.
