Present work reports on Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMTA) of HDPE reinforced with surface modified 0D (Nanodiamonds-NDs), 1D (Multi Walled Carbon Nanotubes-MWCNTs) and 2D (Graphite nanoplatelets-GNPs) nanofillers. Composite samples were prepared using twin screw injection moulding machine. Dynamic properties like storage, loss modulus and tan delta were investigated as a function of temperature and at constant oscillation of 1 Hz. Optimum properties were exhibited by 0.1 CNT/HDPE during a temperature swept from 30 to 110 oC. The storage modulus and loss modulus of 0.1 CNT/HDPE increased by 57 and 28% on comparison with pure HDPE. 0.1 CNT/HDPE exhibited highest ascent during tan delta evaluation confirming good damping property. TEM analysis was carried out to investigate the morphology of ND, MWCNT and GNP.
