Fabrication of 0-3 Non-Lead Based Piezoceramic/Polymer Composites Using Suction Technique
In this research, 0-3 composites between non-lead based piezoceramic and polymer were fabricated using the suction technique. Bismuth sodium titanate (Bi0.5Na0.5TiO3:BNT) which prepared from conventional mixed oxide method was used as active phase whereas epoxy resin was used as matrix phase. The 50% volumetric fraction of BNT/epoxy resin can obtain from suction technique. The physical and piezoelectric properties of composites samples were examined. It can be found that density of composite samples were about 1.78 g/cm3. Moreover, the piezoelectric coefficient (d33) of sample was 13 pC/N. Furthermore, the microstructure of composites was determined using SEM technique.
