Mechanical properties of the commingled waste plastics filled with waste newspaper were studied. To improve adhesion at the interface, abietic acid was used. Tensile strength increased with fiber concentration. However the abietic acid did not have any influence on the strength. Tensile strain and impact strength as well decreased with increasing fiber level in the composite, but the abietic acid at low level of concentration with low level of fiber dramatically improved both properties. The reason seemed to be attributed to double-chemical nature of abietic acid.
