Abstract

Fiber is an element to make a matrix combination phase to become a new material structure that called as a composite. These combinations of these matrix will give specific function where the fiber react as the reinforcement in the composite which is to provide the strength to the overall of the composite. Recently, the developments of green products in composite field have gained attention. However, the usage of synthetic materials has been confined in some mechanical engineering sector. Although natural fibers are highly preferred in features, but the strength of natural fiber polymer is lower than synthetic fiber. However, some treatment can be done to the natural fiber to improve the strength of polymer composites when reinforcing natural fiber in different conditions. The objectives of this project are to fabricate new composition of epoxy resin reinforced kenaf fiber and to test and analyse kenaf fiber specimen through impact and torsion test. The methodology has been used to complete this experiment based on material selection which used kenaf fiber and epoxy resin and make as composition. This experiment was followed ASTM D6110 for impact test and D1043 for torsion test. From the result, the impact test was recorded at the composition in range 55 wt.% kenaf fiber was recorded the high value modulus of rigidity meanwhile composition in range 70 wt.% was recorded the high value of energy absorption. As a conclusion, these composition are suitable being used in the industry as a replacement of the existing fiber.
