Polymer Matrix Composites With Nano-Scale Reinforcements

Organization:University of Hawaii, Hawaii, US
I.P. Brief:We have achieved significant improvements in strength, strain-to-failure, and fracture toughness of brittle epoxy and polyester resins by effectively dispersing nanoparticles and Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) in a high temperature epoxy and/or a polyester resin at very low concentrations using a novel mixing technique.
Keywords:Nanoresins, Nanocomposites, Epoxy, Polyester, Nanoparticles, Carbon-nanotubes.
Primary Industry:Materials
Specific Market:Polymer and Polymer Matrix Composites.
