A Comparison Study of Different Ceramic Filler on Mechanical and Thermal Properties of Glass, Carbon, Kevlar / Polyester Composites
Engineering and Technology Journal,

AbstractFillers play a major role in determination of the properties and behavior of
particles on (glass, carbon, and Kevlar fiber) reinforced polyester composites.
These particles are fabricated using both alumina (Al2O3) and silicon carbide (SiC)
particles as filler materials for such systems. The effect of these two different
ceramic polyester composites are investigated at different additive ratios as (0.2,
0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0) volume fraction.
Comparative analysis shows that the bending distortion, Hardness, and
Impact resistance are affected by the type and content of filler particles, where
both impact and Hardness is increased with increasing volume fraction specially
in case of (0.5) volume fraction for both filler particles and decreased for bending
distortion specially in case of glass fiber/ polyester at (0.5) volume fraction for
both filler particles. Also high electrical properties for all filler/ fiber/ polyester
It is shown that silicon carbide (SiC), have better filler characteristics
compared to those of alumina (Al2O3) .Hopefully, these results provide a cost
effective solution to composite applications.
