The growing demand of composite for variety applications are facing the depletion of petroleum resources, had made many researchers focuses on using natural materials. Rattan as one of them, are prepared in a woven tailored to reinforced epoxy based matrix, this aimed to partially reduce the synthetics. The fibers are previously conducted in alkali to optimize the cohesiveness of fibers into the matrix. The synergistic effect of adhesives silane and dimethylethanolamine (DMEA) into rattan woven can be boosted on shortening the curing time which results to an ultimate property of composite and reduces the production cost. The porosity and a hydroxyl content of fibers are might be obstacles to the series process which can be affected to the failures of maximizing the toughness of the product. The proper treatment can solve these problems.
