Abstract. Composites of the planned concrete grade K-275 mixed with cellulose powder were made to look the effect of density, tensile strength, and compressive strength of the composite material by adding the cellulose powder. Powdered cellulose obtained from the coconut coir insulation by solvent replacement method and affixed to the concrete with variation 0%; 0.25%; 0.5%; 0.75% and 1% of the concrete total weight. This research aims to produce a lighter material that has resembles or even exceed power than previous materials. The best conditions from this research analysis occur in 0,5% cellulose powder addition that is formed lower density material with 2.8208 Mpa of tensile strength and 17.8344 MPa compressive strength, rise respectively 33, 33% and 16.66% compared to the tensile strength and compressive strength of concrete without cellulose powder addition. Keywords: composites, concrete, cellulose, density, tensile strength, compressive strength
