Abstract

The production of flow tile using recycled low density polyethylene and groundnut shell as filler with the particle size of 120µm was carried out in this project . 10 pphr of all the fillers were weighed and mixed with recycled low density polyethylene on two roll mill machines. The result on this work showed that on FTIR five functional groups were identified and they are; OH, C-H, CH2/CH3, C-O, C=H. While for water absorption showed that the sample was absorbed in water that is to show that production is possible when there is availability of water. For the hardness test, it showed that the product has good mechanical properties. A steady temperature of 120°C was selected for the two roll mill machines in order to facilitate the compounding of plastic. Recycled low density polyethylene was fed into the two roll mill machine’s nip until it was masticated. After adding half of the filler, the material was cut diagonally and cross-mixed. Then, the remaining filler was added and the material was cross-mixed diagonally until a bond was formed. After that, the product was shot into a compression molding machine and compressed for ten minutes at a temperature of roughly 160 oC before being moved from the heating chamber to the cooling chamber (a process known as vulcanization).
