This paper contains the tension analysis of a new composite material based on a mixture of polyester resin reinforced by vegetal fiber, and its comparison with the pure polyester resin tension resistance. The analysis was made on mixtures with fiber weight percent of 5, 12, 15, and 20; the specimens were built using a cold compress process; and ASTM standard test methods were used for analysis.
