Abstract: 

Renewable resources such as natural llers in reinforced materials, with their new range of applications, represent an important basis for ful lling the ecological objective of creating environmental friendly materials. A study on composites, using breadfruit seed hull ash particles (BFSHAp) as a reinforcing material and recycled low-density polyethylene (RLDPE) as a novel matrix, has been undertaken. The composites were produced by varying the breadfruit seed hull ash particles from 5-25 wt% and the properties studied using mechanical tests and microstructural analysis. The results show that there was a uniform distribution of the breadfruit seed hull ash particles in the microstructure of RLDPE composites, which is a major factor responsible for improvement in mechanical properties.
