Detail

This scope of invention is to convert the waste oil palm trunk (OPT) into value added product by using method of Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Moulding (VARTM).The VARTM technique proposed OPT reinforced Epoxy, together with the evidence of compressive properties and the morphology Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) of the composite. The OPT reinforced composite will be used as alternative wood production.
