Effect of Treatment of Fly Ash on Mechanical Properties of Polypropylene


Article Preview

Recently lot of research is going on for different type of properties of composites and polymers.Fly ash is one source which is available abundantly and is considered an industrial waste. Fly ash can be used in huge amount in polymers.However there will be some problems with adhesion of the polymer matrix and fly ash. The matrix polymer chosen is Polypropylene and the flyash was treated with different material and composites were made . An effect of content of fly ash and study of effect of treatment on mechanical properties of the PP/fly ash composites was done. XRF studies were carried out to study the composition of fly ash.
