Figures 1-5 show mechanical properties such as tensile strength, tensile modulus, and elongation at break, bending strength, and bending modulus of magnesium oxide (MgO) and aluminum oxide ([Al.sub.2][O.sub.3]) and phosphoric acid ([H.sub.3]P[O.sub.4]) fire retardants treated short jute fibers composites. Magnesium oxide and aluminum oxide ([Al.sub.2][O.sub.3]) fire retardants treated short jute fiber composites had lower mechanical properties than the untreated jute composites for maximum cases.
