- the disposal of synthetic fiber is very difficult to be degraded and cause problems in the environment. The renewable materials have potency as an alternative material for replacing the synthetic material in the composite product. This study was to determine the critical fiber length of mendong fiber embedded in the epoxy composite. The methods were the extraction of mendong fiber from straw, pull out test methods, and morphology analysis of pull out a test using scanning electron microscope. Results show that mendong fiber had a shear strength of 11 MPa and indicated a critical fiber length of 630 æm. The low critical fiber length of mendong embedded in epoxy matrix indicate good adhesion properties of mendong in an epoxy matrix. It recommends that mendong fibers can apply as reinforcement in the epoxy composite in the form of short fiber.
