Mechanical Properties of Electron Beam Cured MMT/MWNTs/Epoxy Composites


Article Preview

In this paper, electron beam radiation technology was applied to the preparation of MMT/MWNTs/epoxy nano-composites. The influences of the addition of Montmorillonite (MMT) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) on the tensile properties of MMT/MWNTs/epoxy nano-composites were examined. The fracture surface of the composites was characterized by SEM as well. The results indicated that the composites have higher tensile modulus than that of the pristine epoxy resin.
