Abstract: This article depicts the processing and mechanical characterization of a new class of multi-phase composites consisting of epoxy resin reinforced with jute fiber and filled with silicon carbide (SiC) particulates. The SiC used as filler material in this work was prepared from rice husk through plasma-processing technique. The effect of filler in modifying the physical and mechanical properties of jute–epoxy composites has been studied. It is found that the incorporation of rice husk derived SiC modifies the tensile, flexural, and inter-laminar shear strengths of the jute–epoxy composites. The micro-hardness and density of the composites are also greatly influenced by the content of these fillers.
