Study on Antistatic PET/PTT-CNTs Composites


Article Preview

The CNTs have been incorporated in PET/PTT matrix and PET/PTT-CNTs composites have been prepared. The CNTs can act an effective nucleating agent in the PET/PTT matrix and the percolation threshold in PET/PTT-CNTs composites is about 6 wt%. SEM graphs indicated that the CNTs are well dispersed in the PET/PTT matrix.
