Abstract

Optimization of injection molding parameters provided a solution to achieve strength improvement of kenaf filler polypropylene composites. Since, molded polymers composites possibility being effected by machine parameters and other process condition that may cause poor quality of composites product. Thus in this study, composite of kenal filler reinforced with thermoplastic polypropylene (PP) were prepared using a sigma blade mixer, followed by an injection molding process. To determine the optimal processing of injection parameters, Taguchi method with L27 orthogonal array was used on statistical analysis of tensile properties of kenaf/PP composites. The results obtained the optimum parameters which were injection temperature 190°C, injection pressure 1300 bar, holding pressure 1900 bar and injection rate 20cm³/s. From the analysis of variance (ANOVA), both flow rate and injection temperature give highest contribution factor to the mechanical properties of the kenaf/PP composites.
