This experimental study is devoted to the analysis of multiwall carbon nanotubes and graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) nanofiller reinforced epoxy hybrid nanocomposites using casting technique. Different weight fraction of nanofiller such as 0.5, 1, 3, and 5% were developed. Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) were used to confirm the morphological behaviors of developed hybrid nanocomposites and the agglomeration free uniform dispersion of nanofillers in epoxy matrix. The effects of reinforcements on the tensile, flexural, and water absorption properties of epoxy hybrid nanocomposites were also investigated. The results were tabulated and recorded. It was observed that the increase in reinforcement is found to be increased the behaviors of epoxy hybrid nanocomposites.
