Abstract

This research is an effort to explore the effect of silane coupling agent on tribology properties of recycled carbon fiber (rCF) reinforced polypropylene (PP). The versatility of PP in general purpose products was addressed to support green environmental by recycling materials. This composite of rCF/PP was being prepared by melt compounding process via internal mixer. Three ratio that being come out for different rCF and three different ratio for silane coupling agent. Some testing and analysis including density, hardness, Pin on Disk, and Scanning Electron Microscope was performed to characterize the properties of rCF/PP composites. The tribology properties of rCF/PP composite is analyze by Pin on Disk in order to characterize the wear and friction analysis of composite for treated and untreated rCF/PP. Based to the result, when adding more weight percentage rCF will increase properties on hardness and density. Meanwhile, the rCF/PP treated is increasing their properties to for hardness and density. Furthermore, for testing tribology on coefficient of friction and wear rate, increase weight percentage rCF will decrease coefficient of friction and wear rate. But for different chemical modification on treated and untreated, the coefficient of friction for untreated rCF is less. Meanwhile, the wear rate for untreated rCF is higher than treated rCF. Due to that, this researched had achieved the objective for producing recycled carbon fiber reinforced polypropylene via melt compounding, comparing tribology properties between treated and untreated recycled carbon fiber reinforced polypropylene, and learn the correlation between tribology properties and morphological characteristic of treated and untreated recycled carbon fiber reinforced polypropylene.
