Tuning surface resistivity and thermal hased polymer composite via conductivity of water resistant fly ash waste tailoring the interfacial polarization
Publication Date : 03/11/2021
High performance environment friendly industrial inorganic waste (fly ash) waste based water resistant electrical insulating hybrid composites are fabricated with very high surface and volume resistivity. Dielectric constant of hybrid composite was decreased significantly from 10900 to 4.98, 5.25, 5.00, 5.81, and 6.69 for filler concentrations of 10, 20, 30, 50 and 60% in epoxy matrix, respectively. Very high surface resistivity of 10 Ohms/sq. and volume resistivity of 104 to 10'5 Ohms-cm with ultra-low water absorption of 0.14 % were achieved. Thermal conductivity analysis shows a slight increase in the thermal conductivity of the composite sheet and reaches the value of 0.4387 W/mK. Such high resistivity is attributed due to low dielectric constant and interfacial polarization and low water absorption in the samples. Our approach presents new, adaptable and cost-effective means for effectively utilizing waste as eco-friendly electrical and thermal insulating sheet and lowering the thermal loss in microelectronics.
