Abstract

This paper presents the development of a new polymer matrix composite (PMC) material for use in injection molding machine. The material consists of iron powder filled in an acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and surfactant powder material. In this study, the effect of iron powder was investigated as a filler material in polymer matrix composite and ABS was chosen as a matrix material. The detailed formulations of compounding ratio by volume percentage (vol. %) with various combinations of the new PMC are investigated experimentally. Based on the result obtained, it was found that, vol. % increment of iron filler effected on the hardness, tensile and flexural strength. With highly filled iron content in ABS composites increase the hardness and tensile strength of PMC material through an injection molding process.
