Short bamboo fibre reinforced styrenated polyester composites were developed with varying fibre content. The density, void content, weight reduction, tensile strength and flexural strength of these composites were determined. These composites possess good tensile and flexural strength. The void content of these composites was found to decrease with increasing fibre content. The density of these composites was found to decrease with increasing fibre content. The percentage weight reduction of these composites from the matrix was found to increase linearly with fibre content. The bamboo fibres and the styrenated polyester resin system constituted lighter composites. The morphology of the fractured surface of the composites showed a narrow interface between the fibres and the matrix.
