Abstract

This study investigated the feasibility of using fibers obtained by the recycling of end life cathode ray tubes glasses (EOL-CRT glass) as new filler for polypropylene material. The effects of these new fibers on the mechanical properties of plastic composites were studied. Fracture surfaces were investigated by scanning electron microscopy. Based on the findings of this work, it appears evident that these new fibers can be used instead of commercial glass fibers providing good mechanical and thermal properties. Moreover the matrix modification in the hybrid composite led to better mechanical performances. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
