There are many products that are already created by human to provide comfort for users that comes in verity of uses. Plastics are inexpensive, lightweight and durable materials, which are moulded-ready into a variety of products that has a wide range of applications. As a consequence, the production of plastics has increased in market over the last 60 years. However, current levels of their usage and disposal generate several environmental problems. Recycling is one of the most important actions currently available to reduce impacts and represents one of the most dynamic areas in the plastics industry today. There are many products that already invented by using these plastic recycle. The one possible application was HDPE wall tiles. There are few limitations or defects on pure HDPE wall tile in terms of their properties. The ideas that the filler materials are mixed with recycled HDPE plastic are generated to increase performance and improve the properties such as hardness, water absorption and flammability. The blends were processed by an internal mixture machine or Haake machine at 180oC processing temperature. Then, the materials which have been mixed will be placed inside the tiles mould of Hot Press Machine or Hot Isostatic Press Machine and melted at a nominal set temperature of 210oC. The wall tile will be tested on flammability test according to method of ASTM handbook. The flammability test was important because the HDPE are flammable and to see if that when mixed with filler material, it will able to reduce the flammability of wall tiles. Other than that, the testing for hardness and water absorption was following the standard that provide by Malaysian Standards. The Statistical Analysis shows that by using filler material of Silica sand give more effects on the HDPE plastic.
