The effect of bio-polymer as bio-matrix material with HDPE for the blending process is described in this study. 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% of bio-polymer was added to the HDPE and then blended by using Brabender Plastograph machine using mixer and roller screw and the test specimens were prepared by injection moulding. The compatibility of the origin bio-polymer (VOP), HDPE and the bio-matrix of bio-polymer/ HDPE (BioPE) were observed during the injection moulding process. Dumbbell shape of tensile test specimens were produced according to ISO 527-2 (5A) from the injection moulding process. Mixing process was successfully conducted based on two different matrix which is lab scale bio-polymer and production of commercial thermoplastic materials.
