Abstract: This study presents effect of fiber length and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) treatment on impact behavior of coir fiber composites. Coir fibers were treated with NaOH (conc. 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10%) for 10 days. For each group of coir, fiber length was 10, 20 and 30 mm. Coir fiber was used as a reinforcement and epoxy as a matrix to fabricate composites by hand lay-up technique. Alkali treated specimens showed an improvement in impact strength of 15% when compared with untreated fiber.
