In this research, Epoxy matrix composites reinforced with short random glass fibers and TiO2 particles with different weight fractions (3, 6, and 9 %wt.) were prepared and then the mechanical testing were measured by tensile, impact, and hardness. The results showed the mechanical properties improve with increasing weight fraction. The impact energy of hybrid composite is better than compared with the composite reinforced with glass fiber alone at same weight fractions.
