Abstract. In this study, Carbon-Basalt-Aramid (C-B-A) and Glass-Basalt-Aramid (G-B-A) samples were produced, and their thermal expansion coefficient (α), glass-transition temperature (Tg), and dimension change properties were investigated. In the study, thermo-mechanical properties of hybrid composites with and without 12 h and 48 h aging processes were determined. As a result, the properties obtained according to the results of TMA analysis of both hybrid composites with the aging process changed significantly.
