Paper Title:
Thermal Properties and Fire Performance of Woven Glass Fibre Reinforced Nylon 6 Nano-Composites with Carbon Nanotubes
  Abstract

This paper presents the effects of incorporating carbon nanotubes (CNT) into nylon 6 on thermal properties and fire performance of woven glass reinforced CNT/nylon 6 nanocomposite laminates. Incorporation of CNT in nylon 6 improved the thermal stabilities, thermal conductivity and fire performance of laminates without compromising their mechanical properties. The thermal conductivity of laminates with 2 wt% CNT increased up to 42% compared to that without CNT. The ignition time and peak HRR time was delayed approx. 31% and 118%, respectively, in laminates with 4 wt% CNT in nylon 6 over that without CNT.
