Abstract

The research about utilization of coco fiber and thermoplastic waste to produce partition wall based on fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) composites has been conducted. The research methodology used was experimental research method. There were three steps conducted in the research; the first, preparation of instruments and sampling of raw materials, the second, blending process for producing fiberboard composites, the third, mechanical-waterproof testing and analyzing of products. The objectives of the research were utilization of coco fiber and thermoplastic waste to produce partition wall based on fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) composites, and mechanical testing and analyzing of the products. The research yield showed that coco fiber and thermoplastic waste were able to utilize for producing partition wall based on fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) composites. The mechanical testing and analyzing of the products showed that the products were relatively competitive compared to similar market products even more waterproof.
