Abstract: Pulverized coal fly-ash has been evaluated as wet-end filler in manufacture of specialty products such as decorative laminate-grade base papers. Fine sized fly-ash is available abundantly as solid waste from coal based thermal power plants. Non-magnetic fly ash particles smaller than 35 um (average particle size of 19 μm) were used as wet end filler. Mechanical, optical, and surface properties of paper hand sheets were studied for different percentages of fillers. It was found that fly ash could prove to be a good filler for laminate grade colored base papers where very high opacity was sought but whiteness was not important. It will decrease the production cost of paper significantly. Utilization of fly ash will help in finding a new area of its use and provide new cheaper filler for pulp and paper industries. This will not only reduce the disposal and environmental problems but also give value to fly ash.
