Jute fibers are totally biodegradable and recyclable substances, i.e., environmentally friendly substances. The contemporary annual global production of jute fiber is ready 3. 2 million tons and used for diverse packages. Various research is being accomplished to discover a suitable substitute for the nonbio degradable plastic strengthened composites, which has a negative effect at the environment. The mercerization technique is executed the use of 8% of sodium in water to form the sodium hydroxide (NaOH). The property of the fabric is similarly promoted with the aid of adding mud crab shell powder and mussels shell powder all through the hand moulding process. The composite fabric is evolved with the assist of isophthalic polyester resin with 2% of accelerator and hardener used at the side of it. Experiments are executed as according to ASTM requirements to discover the mechanical properties. In addition to mechanical properties HDT(Heat Deflection Test) and rate of burning test are done. With help of the studies and study,Jute fabric mat can be used as an alternate for plastic components (non bio degradable).
