A Characteristic of Ijuk Palm Saray Composite with Resin Polyester
MetadataShow full item record
Renewable material gives low impact to environment such as biofiber reinforced composite. A composite was made from ijuk palm saray mixing with resin polyester is a good material as a bumper car. Ijuk is a kind of natural fibers that was rinsed in solution of sodium hydroxide for a range of time then the fiber was cut of into 21 cm in length. Those fibers (ijuk) were arranged as rectangular across to others over an aluminum foil as a molding. Into the preparative, liquid polyester containing catalyst was poured to 2mm thickness. After the blend was to be hardness, the blend was pressed to get a composite preparative. The preparative then was tested its density, tensile strength, impact strength, flexural strength and modulus elasticity. The composite were made in a range of variation concentration rinsed ijuk, 1, 2, and 3% volume to resin polyester and given tensile strength, flexural strength and impact strength average was 12.103 MPa., 32.103 MPa and 5300 J/m2 respectively.
