|Summary||The application of BMC composite material using aluminum sludge from the point of identifying more effective uses was attempted. BMC is composed of glass fiber, unsaturated polyester and filler. Aluminum sludge was applied as the BMC filler of the composite material used for the injection molding and the injection compression molding. With a sludge content of 40% and the glass fiber content maintained at a constant 10%, the tensile strength of the product showed the highest value. From the comparison of sludges at three separate levels of heat treatment, the sludge structure fired at 773K crystallized into alumina and the product containing alumina showed the highest mechanical strength.
