Abstract


Polymer composites containing filler of waste dust from power production were studied. Waste particles were mechanically treated at room temperature for 30 minutes and the influence of mechanical activation on particles size distribution, chemical composition, and shape was established. Composites’ strength characteristics (bending, compressive and impact strength) were tested depending on the amount of waste dust in the composite. The optimal results were achieved at waste concentrations up to 10 wt. %.
