In the current scenario, biosynthesis has a major trend in the world due to its eco-friendly approach, effectiveness and low cost. In this experiment Aluminium Oxide nano powder was extracted from ‘Muntingia Calabura’ leaf with aluminium nitrate as precursor. An attempt has been made to develop the properties of sisal/coir, sisal/banana and banana/coir based hybrid composite with addition of aluminium oxide (Al2O3) nano powder. Compression moulding technique was adapted to fabricate the epoxy based natural fiber composites. Nano Al2O3 powder was added in 0, 1, 2 and 3 wt%. The results demonstrate that addition of nano powder up to 3 weight (wt) percentage improvise the tensile, flexural and impact properties for all incorporated hybrid fibers. Residual wt% for sisal/coir, sisal/banana and banana/coir hybrid composites enhanced from 27.15 to 29.14, 26.07 to 31.33% and 23.76 to 27.50% by 3% nano substitution. Degradation temperature improved in different stages of hybrid combinations. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) images clearly showed the reduction of fiber breakage, matrix breakage and void gaps due to alumina nano powder addition.
