Laminates of vinyl ester resin system with different weight fractions of waste silk fabrics `as reinforcement' are developed and their physico-mechanical properties are studied, using standard procedure. Both, tensile strength and modulus of laminates were found to increase with the increase in weight fraction of silk fabric loading. Properties such as density, void content, hardness, and water absorption of the developed composite laminates are studied. Chemical resistance test is also carried out. Attempts to explain these differing trends are made in this study by analyzing the features observed on the cross-section of tensile fractured specimen using fractography employing scanning electron microscopy.
