  • Abstract

    In the present research, the effect of micro river shell percentage on thermal conductivity properties and flexural strength of the polyester compound with different Weight amount (5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%) to the resin. Glacial river shell particle size was introduced in 8 μm, therefore, The thermal conductivity test and flexural strength were performed on samples. The results indicated river shell percentage decrease the thermal conductivity of a polyester composite with an ideal percentage was 10% and the highest flexural strength weight amount 5wt% of River shell.
