Keywords: fly ash, mechanical activation, filler, a polymer composition


The purpose of the investigation was to study the behavior of mechanically activated fly ash filler containing carbon in a polymer matrix of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). By means of the methods of optical and electron microscopy the change of physical and chemical properties of fly ash after intensive grinding in planetary mills of centrifugal type was considered. The research showed that mechanically activated filler, in contrast to its non-activated analog, structures the polymer matrix and provides improving the characteristics of the composite material.
