The main objective of this work is to study polymermatrix composites from epoxy resin reinforced with fique natural fibers. Laminate composite samples with 0.0, 4.0 and 8.0 wt% of fibers in a fabric configuration were fabricated. No further treatment was used in order to make the process as simple and inexpensive as possible for diverse strucutral applications. Microstructural characterization was analyzed by optical and scanning electron microscopy (OM and SEM). Density, flexural strength and impact tests were also included.
