The aim of this work was investigation of the possibilities of reusing of cotton textile waste, generated during the manufacture in textile industry, as reinforcement in production of composite materials.. The materials used as reinforcement for phenol phormaldehyde resin as matrix have been cotton fabric and cotton textile waste. The composites containing 60 % wt. reinforcement were manufactured by coventional process of compression molding (at pressure of 75 bar and temperature 160 oC). The mechanical and thermal properties of the produced materials based on textile waste were analyzed and compared to those of commonly used continuous fiber reinforced composites based on cotton fabric and phenolic resin. It was found that the composites based on cotton textile waste are more sensitive to processing cycles with respect to continuous fiber reinforced composites. Тhe mechanical properties of the composites based on cotton textile waste were lower for about 25%, although the thermal stability (determined by Martens method) for both composites reinforced with cotton fabric and with cotton textile waste was similar. The obtained results have shown that cotton textile waste could be reused for production of composites with acceptable mechanical properties, and they could be applied in many industries as construction material with moderate mechanical properties. Key words: textile waste, cotton fabric, reinforcement, composite materijal.
