Abstract: The effect of silica and calcium carbonate fillers on the properties of woven glass fibre composite has been studied with an attempt to observe the amount of property loss due to replacement of expensive resin by cheap fillers. The silica and calcium carbonate fillers of the amount 25% and 50% respectively of the weight of the resin have been used and the properties, namely tensile strength, flexural strength and impact strength, studied. It is observed that the impact and tensile strength slightly reduce but the flexural strength significantly increases
