Abstract

A series of modification polyurethane (PU) system was prepared by introducing palm kernel based polyol (PKO-p) to progressively replaced commercial polyether polyol from petrochemical based material. This paper describes the effect of PKO-p on the physical-mechanical properties of polyurethane foams. Stress-strain analysis in tensile mode was conducted with physicochemical analysis by performing Fourier transform infrared (FTIR). The morphological studies were observed by the optical microscope. The foam showed an increment on the modulus up to 458.3kPa as more incorporation of PKO-p introduced to the system. In contrast, tensile strength of PU foam depicted the highest up to 162 kPa at 60:40. The elongation at break showed decrement as the composition of the renewable polyol increased to a ratio 60/40 of PKO-p to petrochemical based polyol.
