Abstract: The development of composites is not only a synthetic fiber composite but also natural fiber composites as they can be recycled. In addition, natural fiber composite also has other advantages when compared with glass fiber, more environmentally friendly because it is able to degrade naturally and the price is cheap, so in this study fiber composite board made of terminalia catappa fruit fiber. The purpose of this research is to know the characteristics of fiber terminalia catappa fruit fiber composite board with poly vinyl acetate matrix. It is expected that from this research can be made composite board that has characteristics according to SNI or ISO standards. Characteristics in question is the mechanical properties (tensile strength and flexural strength). The sample preparation was done by varying the ketapang fiber and the PVAc matrix (40:60, 50:50, 60:40 and 70:30)%. The result of tensile test obtained by tensile strength in sample with variation (60:40)% with maximum 3 MPa and the smallest value at variation (70:30)% with value 2,22 MPa, while the smallest drop point value in variation (70 : 30)% of (3.05% GL) and largest in variation (40:60)% (18.1% GL), and for the smallest specimen length increase in variation (50:50)% by 0.12 mm and the largest on variation (40:60)% by 0.2 mm.
