Preparation of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) blended Lignocellulosic Composite

S ANURADHA JABASINGH, Birendra Kumar, Gyani Kumar



High density polyethylene (HDPE) blended lignocellulosic bagasse composite are structural materials made from renewable resources. These materials are being researched and developed to replace less eco-friendly structural and non-structural materials used in the construction industry. The lignocellulosic-composites studied have the potential to be used for scaffolding, framework, flooring, walls and for many other applications within buildings, as well as for temporary construction.  In this study, high density polyethylene (HDPE) blended lignocellulosic bagasse composite are prepared under controlled conditions using cellulose acetate, coir pith, saw dust and neem dust blend using the HDPE as a matrix. Furthermore, the conditions for their fabrication are optimized.

Keywords: High density polyethylene, Bagasse, Composite, Cellulose acetate, Coir pith, Sawdust, Neem dust, Fabrication.
