Abstract
In present work, Rice Husk Ash (RHA) is an industrial waste produced from the combustion of rice
husk is used in varying proportions of 0 wt%, 2.5 wt%, 5 wt%, 7.5 wt%, 10wt% as filler material for the
fabrication of epoxy based (matrix phase) E-Glass fiber reinforced hybrid composites by manual hand lay-up
process. E-Glass fiber composition is kept constant at 50 wt% and epoxy resin composition is varied
accordingly. After fabrication, the composite slabs are cut into specimens as per ASTM 570 standard to estimate
the water absorption rate of different specimens by immersing them at time intervals of 24, 48, 72, 96, 120 and
144 hours in various waters: distilled water, mineral water and ground water.
The composite filled with 2.5 wt% of RHA has less moisture absorption rate compared to other
composites. Pure composite at 0 wt% of RHA has maximum moisture absorption rate, when immersed in
distilled water. Similarly, the composite filled with 2.5 wt% of RHA has less moisture absorption rate and the
composite filled with 7.5 wt% of RHA has maximum moisture absorption rate compared to other composites
when they are immersed in mineral water. Same scenario is observed in the composites when they were
immersed in ground water. From the results of water absorption behaviour of composites it is suggested that
they can be used for manufacturing the hulls, ships, radiators and submarines.

Key words: Husk Ash (RHA), Water absorption rate, E-Glass fibre and Epoxy resin
