Preparation and Properties of PS/PSMA/EG Composite Materials
Polystyrene (PS)/Poly(S-co-MA)/expanded graphite(EG)(PS/PSMA/EG) nanocomposites were prepared by melt blending, using a variety of PSMA/EG.. The electrical and mechanical properties of the PS/PSMA/EG were measured. Mechanical property measurements of composites indicated higher impact strength and lower tensile strength with increasing concentration of PSMA/EG. Exfoliated graphite has seen a significant reduction for composites in electrical resistivity.
