The current work describe the enhancement and improvisation of polymer composite repose of sisal fiber reinforcement, Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) and thermoplastic LLDPE: LDPE particulate fillers. The composite were prepared with fiber content 5, 10, 15 and 20% (by weight). The composite are characterized with respect to their mechanical properties (Tensile, flexural and impact strength) were studied. Tensile strength showed an increasing trend with increase in fiber content up to 15% then decreases. Impact strength increases with the increase in fiber content. SEM, DSC analysis shows the morphology and material identification respectively.
