In this study, lamination panels were fabricated using chopped strand mat (CSM) and woven roving fabric (WR) as reinforcement for two different types of specimens, type Eb and type Pb, respectively. By a combination of plain materials composite lamination structures were formed, with [CSM/0/90/CSM] 2s as an orientation layer for the structures. In this research study, the structural panel was produced by hand layup technique with a combination of unsaturated epoxy and polyester resin, separately. Therefore, with this publication, a characteristic combination of chopped strand mat/woven roving fabric, are presented. The experimental work for both types of specimens were performed by bending until the structure fails. The characteristics of different materials, i. e. the chemicals used and the composite lamination structure, were studied, because there are different types of damages in the structure of composite materials, such as delamination, matrix cracking, fibermatrix damage and fiber pull-out. Furthermore, it can affect the behavior of composite materials in the whole structure. As a result, this process contributes to failure prevention, as the capabilities of the structures are known, before it can be used for any part, component or area. It was also shown that different configuration lamination layers influence the strength properties of the composite materials.
