Mechanical Properties and Morphology Of Composite Nano Rice Husk Ash As Filler Materials HDPE Thermoplastic With Compatibelizer PE-g-MA And Without PE-g-MA

Eva Marlina Ginting


The purpose of this study was to determine the mechanical properties and morphology of nano composite thermoplastic rice husk ash with High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) with compatibelizer Polyethyelene grafted Maleic Anhidride (PE-g-MA) and without PE-g-MA. The method is performed ways nano rice husk ash particles mixed with HDPE, with variations in the composition of nano rice husk ash (2,4,6,8,10) weight % and compatibeliser PE-g-MA and Without compatibelizer with an internal mixer at a temperature laboplastomil 150 0C at a rate of 60 rpm for 10 minutes. Results of nano composites characterized mechanical properties and morphology.
Results of analysis of the mechanical properties obtained with the addition of rice husk ash nanoscale mechanical properties increased in the composition of 2 to 6% compared with pure HDPE .In general compatibilizer tensile strength without PE-g-MA greater than compatibelizer. Morphological analysis results seen happen even distribution of nano particles of rice husk ash premises thermoplastic HDPE
