Evaluating the mechanical properties of Epoxy resin with Fly ash and Silica fume as fillers

Nehad A. Saleh, M. H. Al-Maamori, Mohamed B. Al-jebory


Composite material consists of merging two composite materials or more are different in mechanical and physical properties, in this study a composite polymeric material has been prepared, it's mainly used in treatment of cracks that happened in concrete slabs, by using Epoxy resin as a major substance in work while the filler were the Fly ash and Silica fume. Samples were prepared by hand-made molds has special dimensions according to the American Standards for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and  adding each filler separately with different ratios as ( 10%, 20%, 30 %, 40% and 50%), then  studying the mechanical properties of these material like tensile, hardness, compression, impact and bending properties.

Key Words : Epoxy resin, Fly ash, Silica fume, fillers.
