The purpose of this research is to create nano particles rice rusk ash used as a filler in thermoplastic high density poliethylen (HDPE) and nano-mechanical properties of the resulting composites. The method of rice husk ash made ??way smoothed by ball mill PM 200 for 1 hour, the filter results in a ball mill with a sieve size of 200 mesh (74 µm), rice husk ash is dissolved in 2.5M NaOH for 4 hours and then stirred with a magnetic stirrer, then at Ball mill for 15 hours at a rate of 450 rpm, nano rice husk ash is used as filler in HDPE thermoplastic composition (2,4,6,8,10) wt% were blends in an internal mixer at a temperature of 150 0C laboplastomil at a rate of 60 rpm for 10 minutes. Nano composite mechanical properties were analyzed with Universal Testing Mechanic. The results obtained rice husk ash silica composition of 89.6 wt%, the particle size of 50.6 nm, the results of the mechanical properties of tensile strength and elongation at break of an increase in the composition of the mixture 2 to 4% by weight.
