In this paper work a cheaper and ecofriendly artificial wood for domestic application is developed by mixing waste compact discs (CDs) and digital versatile discs (DVDs) an e - waste and Delonixregia fruit ( DRF ) with epoxy as a matrix . This artificial wood composite uses 1:1 ratio of Delonixregia fruit particle and C Ds /DVDs flakes . Delonixregia fruit powder to evaluate its effect on the mechanical properties. The percentage water absorption, density, hardness, tension , impact strength, and f lexural strength of both Delonixregia fruit p articles epoxy (DRF) and Delonixregia fruit particles and CD s /DVD s flakes ( DRFP ) composite were determined. The result showed that the use of CDs/DVDs flakes as a filler material has improved these properties. The physical properties, percentage water absorption, density and hardness DRFand DRF P composite are compared with the reported natural wood.
