    A critical study of jute quot;fibres for frp applications with special regard to the moisture and resin absorption is made. Physical and chemical treatments were tried to bring down the above two properties without harming the mechanical properties. The methods tried were acetylation, cyanoethylation, carboxymethylation, benzylation, formylation, zirconylation, coating with polystyrene and in situ deposition of metallic hydroxides of these, the last mentioned method was found quite satisfactory.
