Pengaruh Pelapisan Silane Coupling Agent Pada Papan Partikel Kenaf Dan Tandan Kosong Kelapa Sawit
This study reports the effect of coating Silane Coupling Agent (SCA) on composite surfaces. Composites made from composite particulate kenaf fiber and empty oil palm bunches passing 50 mesh sieves using epoxy resin. The particle board compacting process was carried out using a Hydrolic Press compacting machine with a pressure of 20 Bars, holding time 10 minutes in the initial stages, and continued using a Hot Press compacting machine with a pressure of 20 Bars, temperature 150 oC, holding time 15 minutes. The process of treating the Silane Coupling Agent solution on the composite surface is done manually layered on the composite surface. Composites tensile strength were tested referring to ASTM D 638-14, impact strenght tested referring ASTM D 256-04, and Water Absorption using ASTM D 570. Surface examination was made with a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The Silane Coupling Agent (SCA) coating has succeeded in increasing the bond between kenaf fibers, empty oil palm bunches and epoxy be effective and in accordance with increasing tensile strength, impact strength and water absorption.
