Abstract A series of composites were made with textile waste and low density polyethylene as matrix material. The mechanical, technological and water sorption properties were examined. The results suggest that presence of synthetic fibers waste increases mechanical properties and decreases melting index and water sorption of composites. Recyclability is the major attraction of composites with thermoplastic matrix and thermoplastic reinforcement therefore use of waste textile helps to solve the environmental and recycling problems.
