In this day and age, new products are needed within the structure of environmentally sensitive production methods and for efficient use of Natural Resources and energy to reduce the emissions that cause climate change. Plastic materials take an important place in our daily lives. Polypropylene (PP), which is a thermoplastic polymer material, has a wide range of uses in the automotive industry, manufactory and food packaging, but in some cases it does not provide the desired properties. Composite material is needed to further improve the properties of these materials. Composite materials that are constantly evolving and changing have many advantages such as reducing costs, increasing the efficiency and quality of the product. Some materials used as additives to plastic materials also produce improvements in their mechanical and thermal properties as plastic composites. In this study, 100 standard test bars were produced in the injection machine by making homogenous mixture of % 1 graphite material with commonly used polypropylene (PP) material in double screw extruder machine. Pure polypropylene (PP) izod impact test with the prototype of the product and composite product, Melt Flow Index (MFI), Heat Deformation Test (HDT), hardness test (Shore-D) tensile test and density tests were conducted. According to the test results, some changes in thermal and mechanical properties of pure polypropylene (PP) and Graphite reinforced polypropylene (GPP) composite material were investigated. As a result, the mechanical properties of these two materials have improved by approximately % 30 and thermal properties by approximately % 15. By improving its mechanical and thermal properties it will provide great advantages in the plastics industry. It is also envisaged that it could be used as a new product in the military industry, aviation and automotive sectors.
