Investigation the Egg-Shell Particles Reinforcement on the Mechanical Properties of PMMA Composites
Author(s): Abbas Ibrahim Hussein*
In this study egg-shell Particles (ESP) was used as a reinforcement to make a polymer composite of poly (methyl methacrylate) PMMA as a polymer matrix. The composite samples then were subjected to four mechanical tests: the tensile test, the impact fracture test, the compression, and flexural strength tests. The first two tests showed fluctuation behaviour with a positive indication at 2% of egg-shell Particles addition. The other tests showed a greater response for within the addition of ESP content for the composite.
