Effects of the Self-Healing Microcapsules on the Impact Property of Polymer Composite Gear
By designing the different formulations of the composites and adopting optimized technology including extrusion and molding, the effects of the Micro-capsules on the properties of nylon composites are analyzed by the impact property test. The mechanical impact property of the glass fiber reinforced nylon composites is influenced little if the content of the self-healing microcapsules added is less than 3.5%, and the technology of self-healing microcapsules used in the polymer composite gear is feasible.
