Currently, many operated the coal fired power plant to meet the energy needs of the world's electricity. But the coal fired power plant produces waste that can pollute the environment, such as fly ash and bottom ash, so requires management to not cause environmental problems, because coal fly ash classified as a hazardous waste. Fly ash has a particle size that is very smooth, and of some literature research done previously, fly ash coal containing silica (SiO2), alumina (Al2O3), titanium dioxide (TiO2), magnesium oxide (MgO) and zinc oxide (ZnO) are potentially as filler that are likely to be used as a mixture of silicone rubber and epoxy resin for electrical insulators. So this research theme was engineering insulation materials by utilizing waste coal fly ash. The purpose of this study was to obtain performance characteristics of waste coal fly ash as filler in silicon rubber and epoxy resin. To achieve these objectives, the activities that have been done is examined the effects of the use of fly ash as filler in silicone rubber material and epoxy resin. Parameters measured were dielectric strength and relative permittivity. The result of this research is the dielectric strength of silicone rubber rose with increasing quantity of fly ash. Conversely in epoxy resin, dielectric strength decreases with increasing quantity of fly ash. Furthermore, the measurement results relative permittivity, where the value of the relative permittivity of silicon rubber swell if it is filled with fly ash, as well as epoxy resin which has a value of permittivity relative to the concentration of fly ash filler material is linear.
