In this paper , hand lay - up method was employed to prepare three models of polymeric materials and their compositions before and after reinforcement with different Volume fractions ( 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 ) %. First group ( G1 ) consists of unsaturated polyester resin reinforced with Jute Fiber which that cut to length ( 5mm ) with Volume fraction that above - mentioned, and the second group ( G2 ) consists of Epoxy resin reinforced with the same fiber, as for the third group ( G3 ) ; consists of polymeric Blend ( 75% Epoxy + 25% Unsaturated polyester resin ) reinforced with the same fiber. Experimental results includes, Tests of Impact Strength and Thermal conductivity. For a different volume fractions of a samples ( all samples ) , the results showed that Impact strength increases with increasing volume fraction while thermal conductivity decreases by increase it.
