Abstract: Carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites a perfect structural material due to their outstanding malleable strength, great rigidity, light mass and pronounced thermal resistance. But their inferior out-of-plane properties which are controlled by the matrix–fibre interface restrict the use of CFRP composites in critical applications. Amalgamation of nano-filler in the CFRP composites has found to improve the matrix-fibre interface and there by out-of-plane response. Though matrix modification has contributed to the improvement of interface, fibre modification has a scope for higher levels of nano-filler incorporation and proper fibre nano-filler adhesion. Out of several methods available for fibre modification electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is an eye-catching method for monitoring as well for nanofiller deposition. In recent ages, Graphene has grabbed wonderful consideration Among the graphene based functionalised nano fillers Carboxyl functionalized Graphene (G-COOH) modified CFRP composites have shown better ILSS properties. This research primarily aims to fabricate a CFRP composite using G-COOH modified carbon fibres with varying nano-filler concentrations of 0.5g/ltr, 1g/ltr and 1.5g/ltr in the EPD bath and its impact on the mechanical properties of the FRP composites. The laminates thus obtained were subjected to short beam shear test for the determination of inter laminar shear strength (ILSS). Fractography of the tested samples to observe various failure modes has been carried out by using scanning electron microscope (SEM).
