The Improvement in Mechanical Properties of Coconut Shell Powder as Filter in HDPE Composites
Composites have been prepared using the coconut shell powder and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) as the components. Coconut shell powder was mixed with HDPE via compounding of coconut shell powder and HDPE of HDPE and Coconut shell powder. The resultant materials were cast in three outlines and dried which resulted in composites. Their mechanical properties have been studied in detail and compared with the conventional composite made from the coconut shell powder used as reinforcement and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) which was used as a matrix. The resulting material can be used in the applications of Aerospace and Automobile etc.
