Patra , Suvendhu Kumar (2013) Study of Physical and Thermal Behaviour of Epoxy
Composites filled with Blast Furnace Slag. BTech thesis.
Blast furnace slag is a major industrial waste generated in huge quantities during extraction of
iron from its ores. Today eliminating, reducing or recycling waste is a major environmental
remediation technique used to manage health and ecological risks. This paper aims at studying
physical and thermal behaviour of epoxy composites filled with industrial waste in the form of
blast furnace slag. It is already being used in concrete mixtures, soil stabilization, and metal
matrix applications along with continuous research being pushed in for identifying more usage.
Hence in coherence, this paper aims at exploring the possibility of BF slag’s ability in
manufacturing composites that can improve certain mechanical properties and becomes a
possible low cost substitution to other composites. Resulting composite in this procedure has
been found to have improved thermal conductivity.
