Abstract


The properties of polypropylene (PP) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) reinforced with marble and granite dust particles was investigated. In this work, particle shape, thermal analysis and chemical composition of the marble and granite dust were determined. The effect of marble and granite dust particles content on the mechanical and physical properties of the composites was obtained at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 weight percentage. Also, the effect of the dust particle size on the properties 37, 387, 450 and 1350μm was obtained. The fracture surface of the tested specimens was studied using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Key words: Marble and granite dust, Polymer, Polymeric composites, thermal analysis, chemical composition, physical analysis, mechanical properties, scanning electron microscope.
