The Research of the Effect of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes on the Properties of Epichlorohydrin Rubber


Article Preview

The development of frost-resistant elastomeric materials with high performance characteristics remains one of the topical issues. Solving this issue will significantly improve the reliability of machines and mechanisms operating under extremely low temperatures. The influence of multi-walled carbon nanotubes on the performance properties of epichlorohydrin rubber was investigated. This rubber of unique frost resistance has low glass transition temperature (Tg = -60 °C).
