This study focuses on projects to analyze the impact of kenaf fibers towards compression characteristics .while in the process were develop and analyze new composite polyester resin reinforced with kenaf fiber. A feature of the new composition will be tested using a universal testing machine. The potential of kenaf fibers have seen through this project .The problem faced by expert and maker is common to find a great fiber for composites in several variables, for example, mechanical properties and physical properties of the fiber. Kenaf fiber is fiber glass fiber characteristics had been produced substitutes and other items that are currently used. Provides kenaf fiber (focus on 3mm) and polyester resin in quantities in percentage by mass for test compression using fabrication and mold to produce a composite. A test will be conducted using Universal Testing Machine (UTM) ranging 50KN maximum. The design process involved a compression molding process to produce a composite. Analyzing the effect on kenaf fiber direction compression. The characteristics that need to be taken will be the composition of kenaf fiber and polyester resin composition with the proportion by mass percentage. After each of these materials has been set up, the creation of a reference to kenaf fiber and polyester resin made. Proposed new composite test has been taken. An analysis of the impact of kenaf fiber in the direction of compression characteristics by using Universal Testing Machine (UTM). After tests on kenaf and polyester resin in compressed results show a good mix and achieve a higher limit strength is sample D (60% kenaf and 40% polyester resin), where we know the percentage of the mixture reaches the desired objectives.
