The Effect of Addition Slag of Cast Iron and Cement to Unsaturated Polyester on Impact and Bending Properties
Pages : 1296-1298
Slag is a partially vitreous by-product of the process of smelting ore, which separates the desired metal fraction from the unwanted fraction. Slag is usually a mixture of metal oxides and silicon dioxide. This research deals with formation a new composite materials have good properties and cheap from unsaturated polyester and waste materials usually unusual alone and harm to environment. In this research, the effect of three slags powder (cast iron slag, cement dust) on some mechanical and physical properties of unsaturated polyester were studied. The results showed that the Bending strength increased with increasing of the powder. The impact strength decreases with increasing of slags.
