In this research, a group of polymeric composite materials with an epoxy basis (PMCS) was manufactured, the base material is (Master Brace ADH 1406 Part A), which represents a substance (Resin) and (Master Brace ADH 1406 Part B) is a (Hardener), with the standard mixing ratio of material [1H:3R]: this material supported the basis with powders of different materials (Al2O3, Black Carbon, Active Carbon, kaolin, Car Exhausts Type I, II and III). The manufactured samples have been subjected to hardness and impact resistance tests. The results showed that there is an improvement in the surface hardness and the shock resistance of the base material after reinforcement it with different powders. The results also showed that there is a critical ratio for the amount of the reinforcing material, which shows the best case of improvement in the mechanical properties and it depends on the nature of the base material. The results also showed that the samples of the substrates reinforced with different powders showed their ability to adsorb nine elements or compounds from the hypothetical system that were subjected to it for a period of (30 days), and that the most basic materials that showed the content of the adsorbed elements was the substrate fortified with powder (Black Carbon) and the least It is the base material supported by powder (Al2O3), and the base materials supported by powder (Active Carbon) are less efficient in the adsorption of elements and compounds than (Black Carbon), in addition, the base materials supported by powders of materials used in car exhausts and of their three types have a limited ability in Adsorption of elements and compounds.
