Development of a novel hybrid polymer composite with coir dust and fly ash reinforcements and investigation of its dielectric nature

A PDF version of this paper is available here. Abstract: Fly ash is an industrial waste. Coir dust is a by-product of coir fiber production. A novel low cost hybrid polymer composite, using coir dust and fly ash particle reinforcements is proposed in this paper. Investigation of the dielectric behavior of this hybrid polymer composite proves its potential as a marketable product. Individual compacts of coir dust, fly ash, and a mixture of both were also prepared for comparison […]
