B. Statement of the Problem
This study aims to produce an agar extract as additive component in making floor wax.
Specifically it sought to answer the following questions:
a.) Which of the following concentrations (50%,75%,100%) of agar extract would be
the most effective as additive component in making floor wax.
b.) Is there a significant difference between the (50%,75%,100%) of agar extract woulb be the most effective as additive component in making floor wax.
Ho: There is no significant difference between the concentrations (50%,75%,100%) of
agar extract would be the most effective as additive component in making floor wax.
I. Research locale
This study was conducted at the researcher’s residence at Barangay zone 1, Varela st. Zamboanga city.
II. Research Design
Single group design was used in this study to determine the effectiveness of agar extract as additive component in making floor wax.
III. Gathering of Materials
The agar was bought to the public market as well as the mineral oil. The paraffin wax or candles will be bought at the commercial store.
A. Preparation of the Agar
The agar was washed with warm water and rinsed throughly then will be placed in a clean container.
B. Preparation of the Extract
The agar was blended in a blender for 1 to 2 minutes. Then the agar was placed in a cheese cloth and squeezed in able to get it’s extract. After that, the extract was kept in a clean container.
C. Preparation of the Wax
Mineral oil was heaten in a cooking pot. After heaten the paraffin wax was melted with the mineral oil in the cooking pot, ranging temperature of 63 to 71 degrees celcius and stir it. After melting the paraffin wax, the agar extract was placed in the cooking pot and stir it for 1 to 2 minutes. After that, the mixture was removed from the cooking pot and was placed in a clean container and cool it for 30 to 45 minutes.
D. Observation Test
In order to determine the effectiveness of the agar extract as additive component in making floor wax, it was applied on 3 cement floors with an area of 4 meter square. Wax A with 50% of agar extract was applied on cement floor A. Wax B with 75% of agar extract was applied on cement floor B. Wax C with 100% of agar extract was applied on cement floor C. The three cement floor will were dried for 10 to 15 minutes, then were scrubbed with coconut husk. Observe the 3 cement floor for 3 days and record which shines the most per day.
