Abstract:

This research is related to the making of composites from polypropilene (PP) plastic waste material using a micro palm empty fruit bunch (EFB) filler, the fillers used are 63 and 90 micrometers in size with PP : fiber ratio (70:30 and 60:40). The method used by the process of screw extruder, plastic material and filler is dissolved with the compatibilizer then mixed in the extruder by giving heat / temperature around 160 - 170 0C. The product of this research is in the form of granules or composite pellets which are then printed with a hot press to be formed as specimens or modeling according to industry requirements. In this study the target application is as a wood substitution material for interior needs, furniture, electronic casing and electronic board / board elements. The products of this research are composite granules or pellets that are ready to be printed or modeled as needed. The target of this research application is as a wood substitution material for interior needs, furniture, electronic casing and electronic element boards.
