This study is concerned with the effect of alkali treatment on a metal content of sugar palm (arenga pinnata) fiber. The alkali treatment was done by the fibers being soaked in the NaOH and KOH solutions for one hour with the concentration variation of 0.25 M and 0.5 M and without heating. Alkaline KOH solution is more robust when compared with NaOH solution; in this case, the influence of the reaction solution becomes the study parameter in addition to the level of the solution concentration. The X-Ray Fluorescence testing (XRF) was used to test the metallic elements or elementary analysis content. The XRF testing results show that the five highest metal elements contained in the fiber composition are silicon, calcium, potassium, phosphor, and iron respectively. The fiber treatment with NaOH and KOH solutions was performed with their respective concentrations of 0.25 M and 0.5 M; finally these treatment results were then being compared. It was found that the percentage of the concentration of metal elements in the fiber with 0.5 M KOH treatment was the least if compared with the other treatments. The factor of reaction power or base strength and concentration levels affect the reaction solution containing the metal element in the fiber, where the stronger alkaline and high concentration of the solution the more metal content becomes decomposed so that the one remaining in the fiber becomes less.
