Fibre is the one of the elements with matrix combination phase to become a new material structure that called composites. These combinations of the two types giving specific function where the fibre as the reinforcement in the composite are to provide the strength to the overall of the composite. In the production of composite resource at present, a combination of elements used must have towards more technology-friendly environment, where it can affect low rate pollution for the long term durations. Among the selected type of fibre access feature that required more environmentally friendly is a natural fibre. The scope of this study is to produce a composite of natural fibre where using coconut fibre source in which the impact test was done and the results is analysed. In industrial of creating new composite, it must give low effect emissions to the environment, in other side, the total cost in composite productions must be decreased so natural fibre is an alternative for the problem solving. Scope of this study includes the production of a composite consisting of coconut fibre and polyester resin by running the impact test and also reviewing the element properties to produce this composite. The result shows the value of impact properties which are giving effect by the total of fibre content. The pattern of the result whereby the increasing of the rate of percentage coconut fibre in the sample increased the value of the resilience and energy absorb. However the values given are directly proportional between percentage of coconut fibre, when 60% of coconut fibre content giving the maximum value of impact properties. Overall of this research output shows that the elements that affected towards increasing of the result is the good bonded between fibre, proper strength distributions and absorption of value of impact energy and also increment of fibre plasticity by the lignin of the fibre.
