Current work reports on evaluation of bulk mechanical properties of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) reinforced with functionalized 1D (Multi Walled Carbon Nanotubes- (MWCNTs) and 2D (hexagonal-Boron Nitride Nanoplatelets-(h-BNNPs) fillers. Mechanical mixing and injection moulding technique was used to prepare the composites. Evaluation of bulk mechanical properties like hardness, yield stress, fracture stress, impact toughness and Young`s modulus was carried out. The optimum properties were exhibited by HDPE/0.25 MWCNT/0.1 BNNP. Hardness, yield stress, fracture stress, impact toughness and Young`s modulus was observed to increase by 93.84, 80.83, 59.23, 115 and 42.05% on comparison with pure HDPE. TEM images confirm the tubular and hexagonal morphology of MWCNT and h-BNNP. It is concluded from test results that addition of MWCNT and h-BNNP into HDPE has improvised mechanical properties.
