Paper Title:
Compressive Strength of Rice Husk Filled Resin
  Abstract

The findings for strengthening and repair of implant materials are stepping up to ensure better protection of the patients. The utilization of composite resin is favourable to combat this challenge. However, it being a brittle material does not entitle it to be used in the design. Hence, epoxy resin combining with silicon oxide filler from the rice husk; is a relatively new material in biomedical engineering, enable it to meet its fullest strength and flexibility. Work was performed at laboratory to extract the silicone compound from rice husk and as well investigate the compressive strength of rice husk filled resin material. Initially the rice husk was experimented by undergoing pre-treatment, chemical treatment and incineration process to obtain silicone compound. The silicone compound was later mixed with epoxy resin at different percentage of filler. In the final stage, the compressive strength of rice husk filled resin was analyzed and affirmed experimentally based on the ASTM standards. The results obtained were then analyzed using analytical software SPSS. Epoxy resin filled with 20% silica from rice husk gave the optimum compressive strength of 90 Mpa.
