Zillions of tons of textile waste are generated every year around the world through production of fabric clothes as well as through other types of textile related manufacturing activities. Strict rules and updated legislations have continuously forced textile manufacturers and researchers to rethink the sustainability and recyclability aspects of textile products. In this research, textile waste materials (PET and Rayon) were utilized as a raw material along with recycled HDPE to manufacture textile composites. Various examinations such as tensile strength, impact strength, density, SEM, thickness in swelling and water absorption were deployed to study the mechanical properties of these composites. The outcomes have shown that these composites have match able properties compare to natural fiber composites like, wood, plywood, cellulose, stone wool, PP et cetera and could possibly be utilized in aerospace, automotive and construction for various applications.
