Effect of Molding Parameters on the Flexural Strength of Carbon Black/Graphite/Epoxy Nanocomposites Using Taguchi Method
Optimization of molding parameter on the flexural strength of carbon black/graphite/epoxy (CB/G/EP) nanocomposites using Taguchi method was studied. Three molding parameters was chosen in this study which are molding temperature, molding pressure and molding time. Experimental trials were carried out based orthogonal array design using those three parameters. The results were analyses using the signal to noise (S/N) and analysis ofvariance (ANOVA). Flexural strength of the CB/G/EP nanocomposites increases from 56.23 MPa to 65.11 MPa usingoptimize parameter obtained from the analysis method. These results shown that the Taguchi method is successfully to get optimum parameters of molding parameters to produce CB/G/EP nanocomposites.
