Abstract

Fly ash polyester composites are characterized by high strength to weight ratio. Due to their light weight and good mechanical properties, these materials are finding wide applications in many industries as well as commercial applications. Composite is prepared using unsaturated polyester as the matrix and fly ash as filler. This paper reports the results of tensile and compressive strength of these composites. The standard test specimens are prepared according to ASTM D695 and ASTM D638 standards. Specimen containing 10% to 50% by volume of fly ash are haracterized. The results reveals that composite containing 50% fly ash takes a very high tensile load where as composite containing 10% fly ash take a very high compressive load. This study also emphasis on effective utilization of industrial waste or combustion byproduct for the development of composite material
