The objective of this research work is to fabricate a lightweight, high strength and high stiffness Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) composite and to perform drilling operation with internal diameter of 8mm on the fabricated GFRP composite plate with three drill bit geometries such as twist drill, trepanning drill and 8 facet drill. The response obtained is the delamination factor with the aid of Digital Image Analysis. The results revealed that drilling with 8 facet drill tool exhibited the optimum condition on the fabricated GFRP composite.
