The sugar palm fibre reinforced epoxy composite use cheap fibre material, renewable and has low density. Charpy impact test was carried out to investigate the mechanical properties of composite. To maintain a low cost of the composite product, the composite was produced without compatibilizer. The impact strength of composite was measured with variation in length of the fibre embedded in epoxy matrix. The length of the fibre were 3, 6, 9 cm. The result shows that the impact strength was higher than the pure epoxy. As the length of the fibre increases, the impact strength was increases. The scanning electron micrograph shows insufficient compatibility between particle and polyester matrix. This compatibility was attributed to the strength of the sugar palm fibre reinforced epoxy composite. The mechanism of the composite failure was dominated by fibre breaking for composite with the highest impact strength.
