An experimental study has been carried out to investigate tensile, bending, impact and hardness properties of chopped carbon fiber reinforced epoxy composites. Four different weight fractions (0%, 6%, 8%, 10%) were added as reinforcement to composites. The samples were manufactured by using a special designed mold. Tests were carried out according to the ASTM standards. Results of the tests have shown that hardness increases with the increasing amount of carbon fiber in composites. Tensile, bending and impact performances have increased up to 8% of carbon fiber in the composite and then started to decrease.
