Article Preview

In this work, the carbon nanotubes(CNTs) were reinforced with polypropylene(PP)matrix resins to improve the electrical and thermal properties of PP/ CNTs composites in different contents of 0,1, 3,and 5 wt.%. The surface, volume resistivity and crystallization type of the composites were investigated. As a result, the maximum degradation rate temperature of the composite is improved 30 °C, the surface resistivity and volume resistivity of composite are 5 ×106, 7 ×105,respectively, for the optimum composition of composite (CNTs 3 wt.%). The integrated XRD pattern of the composites shows the typical α-form PP crystals.
