Effect Of Flyash On The Mechanical, Thermal, Dielectric,Rheological And Morphological Properties Of Filled Nylon 6


Fillers are used along with various commodities as well as engineering polymers to improve the properties of polymers. The performance of filled polymers is generally determined on the basis of the interface attraction of filler and polymers. Fillers of widely varying particle size and surface characteristics are responsive to the interfacial interactions with polymers. The present study deals with the effect of particle size and its concentration on the properties of flyash filled nylon 6.
