Tensile properties, polypropylene, sugarcane bagasse, polypropylene maleic anhydride compatibilizer
In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in materials treatment in order to improve the properties. In this study, the effect of recycled acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBRr) loadings and compatibilization of polypropylene maleic anhydride (PPMAH) in the polypropylene (PP) / recycled acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBRr) / banana skin powder (BSP) composites was analysed. The proposed material involved a few steps such as the Polypropylene (PP) was melt at optimum temperature which is 230°C. Next, the composites for both uncompatibilized and polypropylene maleic anhydride (PPMAH) compatibilized were mixed using heated two roll mill at specific temperature (180°C) with six different NBRr loadings rate. A few analysis techniques such as tensile properties and Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) were conducted. The SEM micrographs show good attachment and better distribution of filler in the compatibilizer composite.
