Abstract:

Eternit is one of the asbestos-based products. Asbestos is a fibre-based product that has good properties as electric isolator. However, the application of asbestos for eternit was decline due to the side effect that may cause serious and fatal illnesses. Therefore, the development of new material is needed as an alternative for eternit. One possible product is to use a natural fibre from empty fruit bunch of palm (EFBP). The amount of EFBP in Indonesia is increasing from year to year. Producing eternit based on the EFBP is in line with the effort to overcome the negative effect of asbestos fibre that has limited resources. Furthermore, this research aims to produce an eternit product with eco-friendly tehnology based. In this research, fibre from EFBP has been mixed with calsit or dolosit powder and limestone to produce eternit. Our results show that the EFBP-based eternit has higher tensile strength when compare to gypsum product. Impact test of EFBP-based eternit shows that 10% volume was the optimum composition. EFBP-based eternit with 10% volume also results optimum tensile strength with 0.117 kg/mm2. The use of EFBP-based eternity has a potential application for mass industrial production.
