The objective of this study was to assess the effect of bamboo powder addition and the treatment of its surface on the properties and structure of rotationally molded (rotomolded) polypropylene. In this study we can transform plastic and bamboo powder into a product by putting the raw materials into hollow mold and then cover the mold. The mold is rotated along two axes by burning with high temperature to make liquid plastic flows evenly along the inner surface of the mold with gravity. The results of this research had shown that, by using LLDPE plastic 4 kg, bamboo waste powder 1 kg size of 0.15: 0.30: 0.85 mm tested with humidity 10:15:20% mixed and then molded, it was found that the moisture of waste bamboo powder had a direct effect on molding. If the moisture in the bamboo powder is more than 20%, the work will not be molded. It shown look like a lump. The moisture content less than 15% can be molded as a product. In terms of the size used in this test 0.15: 0.30: 0.85 can be molded well in the range of moisture, not more than 15%.
