Abstract

This paper presents the influence of rubber on mengkuang (MK) reinforced thermoplastic composites as the rubber content appeared to increase at low fibre loading of 10% MK and high fibre loading of 30% MK. The MK fibre was blended with high density polyethylene (HDPE) and natural rubber (NR) through melt blending via internal mixer. The MK composites at 10% MK fibre loading exhibited higher tensile strength, tensile strain at break, and impact strength; but lower tensile modulus than MK composites at 30% fibre loading. Both fibre contents showed that the tensile strength and the tensile modulus decreased, while tensile strain at break and impact strength seemed to increase as the rubber content increased up to 40%. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) micrograph was employed to observe the fibre dispersion, as well as physical interactions between the fibre and the matrix. This study showed that the effects of MK fibre loading on mechanical properties and morphology were influenced by rubber content.
