Areca nut fiber is one of the natural fiber alternative material in composite making scientifically and its exploiting still developed. Fiber propose marriage to now used many in furniture industries and crafting of household and also traditional drug materials because besides is easy to got is, cheap, can lessen environmental pollution (composite biodegradability) so that this can overcome environmental problems, and also do not endanger health. At this research, researchers are looking for the ability of this particle board toward to test in the form of mechanical properties such as modulus of rupture, screw holding capacity, and FTIR. The variable is used comparison among areca fiber and polyester that is 1:1 and 1:2 of volume percent, and also areca fiber particle size measure that is 50 mesh and 100 mesh. The characteristic of this Areca nut fiber particles toward to test of which have been done are appropriate to Standard Nasional Indonesia (SNI) which have been specified. The result of this research conclude this Areca nut fiber is suited for as filler in composite particle board making with matrix of polyester.
