Zinc Oxide (ZnO) is a relatively soft material with an approximate hardness of 4.5 on the Mohs scale. Its elastic constant is smaller than that of the relevant semiconductor. The purpose of conducting this research was to determine the effect of zinc Oxide on the impact strength of polymeric foam composite materials, to determine the best composition of composite materials reinforced by Oil Palm Empty Bunches (EFB) and Zinc Oxide (ZnO) as reinforcing composite materials. Zinc Oxide Treatment (ZnO) 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% with different sizes of each fiber of Oil Palm Empty Bunches (EFB) which are different, namely mesh 40, 60, 80, 100. The method used hand lay up which the direct pouring method. This method is done by attaching or touching the constituent materials in an open mold, slowly leveling it using a grading wheel or applying external pressure. The best composition of this research is mesh 100 with Zinc Oxide (ZnO) 15% with an Impact value of 2.65116 Joules.
