The aim of this project to expand the prepreg concept to non non-continuous based fibers, especially agriculture waste and other waste materials like as palm fiber, newspaper fiber and rice husk fiber. Akrylonytrille butadiene styrene (ABS) is used as the matrix, meanwhile methyl ethyl cetone (MEK) acts as the solvent. The scope of the study on the resin mixing technique with known amount with ratio 1 : 1. The resin mixing technique with known amount (method B) produces prepregs with varying properties depending on the resin to fiber’s ratio. On this project ratio is 1 : 1. the prepreg concept was clearly shown applicable to different resin such as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and polystyrene (PS). Both the prepregs and composite are found as expected to be dependent on the ratio. Also it was found that the prepreg concept applies to different variety of lignocellulosic fibers such as newspaper fiber, rice husk fiber act. Palm fiber is a strong fiber compare newspaper fiber and rice husk fiber nad shown from mechanical properties such as tensile and flexural strength.
