This work aims to evaluate the characteristics of epoxy resins by introducing (1%, 3%, 5%, and 7% wt. nano dioxide silica). Using the "hand lay-up " process, about 125 samples were prepared for conducting tests (Hardness, Tensile strength, Impact, Water Absorption) and analyzing results by (SPSS-Scheff). The addition of 7% nano-silica dioxide particles to epoxy considerably raises the hardness values (85.350+.5150 shore D), according to the hardness results. Statistically, very large variations were observed of hardness, tensile strength, elongation at break, impact strength, and water absorption (Sig 0.01, 0.04, 0.003, 0.02, and 0.002) respectively, and this indicates an improvement in the properties when addition nano-silica dioxide to the epoxy resin.

In this research study, specimens were provided by polyester full with (5% weight fractions) of chopped carbon fibers and (1%,3%, 6%, and 9% weight fractions) of lemon peels particles prepared by Hand lay-up method. To evaluating (S/N) values with variance analysis (ANOVA), Taguchi's experimental design method (L9) was used. From the results of ANOVA the factors (specimen content and load) were most influential affecting the wear process, while the sliding time factor had the least effect on the wear process. The tensile properties results show that adding particles of lemon peels by 9% improved (tensile strength, modulus elasticity, and elongation percentage) values compared to other weight fraction. Presence of lemon peel particles and chopped carbon fiber with the unsaturated polyester resin was positive for both wear and tensile properties.
