Cenosphere also known as Hollow Ceramic Microsphere and trade names like Cenolite, Spherelite and Lifefilletc Standard Grades. Cenosphere is a glass hard, inert hallow silicate spheres. In India, the main source of electricity is coal fired thermal power plants. The huge amount of fly ash (cenosphere) is generated by this power plant. In the present paper, we see the cenosphere disc which is the mixture of fly ash-talc with porous material (Napathalene) and 10 % sodium hexa meta phosphate (SHMP) added to the mixture. As increase in the talc percentage, the absorption of water is decrease while the porous material (Napathalene) is added upto 60% the absorption of water is gradually starts increasing.
