This research was carried out by reinforcing the matrix (phenol-formaldehyde and urea-formaldehyde) resins respectively, with natural material (cane sugar fibers) . Each specimen was reinforced with different weight percentage, (5% , 10% , 15% , 20% and 25 % ) of chopped cane sugar fiber . After preparation of composite material, some of the mechanical properties, flexural, tensile and impact tests were studied of prepared specimen.
The results obtained from these tests indicated that, 25% from chopped Cane sugar reinforcing with urea-formaldehyde composite has the higher values of mechanical properties, compared with 5% from same composite, and 25% from chopped Cane sugar reinforcing with phenol-formaldehyde composite has the higher values of mechanical properties, compared with 5% from same composite.
