Abstract

Banana fiber composites are developed from banana fiber of Pisang Abu, epoxy and gypsum. The banana fibers were extracted and dried at 60°C. The composites were test for 30vol% and 40vol% oflong and short fiber to determine the effect offiber length and the optimum fiber content. At 10vol% and 20vol% of gypsum added to the short fiber composite, the mechanical properties of the composite are different. All samples were tested for flexural strength and Scanning Electron Microscopic (SEM) at the fracture surface. A very high architectural art design pose in the composites will add value and make it more commercialize. Other that diat, lots of applications can be developed from usingbanana fiberreinforce epoxy-gypsum composite. IV
