Several waste materials were used to develop hybrid composite materials that can be used in several applications. Tetra Pack waste reinforced with waste wool fibers were used to fabricate composite materials as a replacement of traditional wood particle board. The developed composite materials can be used as supplementary materials for construction. Also, it can be used as wall panels, automotive door panels, and for other applications. A mixture of waste wool fibers and shredded Tetra Pack of different percentage ratios namely 0/100, 5/95, 10/90, 15/85, and 20/80 respectively were used to fabricate the final hybrid composite materials. Mechanical and physical tests were conducted to determine the final properties of the produced composite. Thermal properties of the produced hybrid composite were also evaluated to determine the performance of the final composite to be utilized as insulation materials.
