Abstract

In order to extend utilities of recycled plastics made from fishing ropes fibers, which is consisted from synthetic fibers, polyethylene and polypropylene, the composites with crushed rice hull (RH) used as filler was investigated.  The elastic modulus of the composites in tensile and bending modes increased by adding the rice hull.  While the degree of elongation decreased.  Particle size of RH also affects those mechanical properties.  This may be due to the homogeneity on mixture of resin with the fine RH particles in composites.
