Paper Title:
Mechanical Properties and Wear Behavior of Polypropylene/Carbon Nanotube Nanocomposites
  Abstract

Polypropylene(PP)/carbon nanotube(CNTs) nanocomposites with different CNTs fraction were prepared by the melting blend method. The effects of CNTs content on the wear properties and mechanical properties were mainly investigated. The results show that the friction coefficient of the nanocomposites decreased as the concentration of CNTs is increased. With increasing CNTs content, tensile strength, ultimate strain, compact strength and Young’s modules increase firstly and then decrease. For the composite with an effective CNTs content of 3 wt, its tensile strength, ultimate strain, compact strength and Young's modules were improved by 72, 44.4,88 and 37 %, respectively, as compared to PP.
