In this research, high density polyetylene (HDPE) reinforced oil palm empty fruit bunch fiber micro composites to improve the mechanical properties were prepared using melt blending and hot press technique. Oil palm empty fruit bunch fiber as a filler reduces in sizes 63, 75, 90 and 106 um. Oil palm empty fruit bunch fiber were mixed with in 10 ml MAPE 8% (in xylene) solution up evenly. The variation composition ratio of HDPE in filler is (80:20, 70:30, 60:40, 50:50). The good results showed that composite boards are tested viable filler and matrix ratio 30%:70%, 3.969 to 12.243 MPa of tensile strength, the value of the melting point (Tm) of 400.05 to 497.07 C for thermal properties. FT-IR analysis results indicated that the groups contained in the matrix and the filler is still present in the composite board products. The SEM photograph tests showed that the best products are the smallest filler size is 63 um, and 4943.4 J/m2 of impact strength test obtained. The results of this study can be applied as part of an electronic element and the casing. Because high heat resistance, is a semiconductor, not easily broken and durable.
