Manufacturing and Investigation of the MWCNT/Polymer Nanocomposites
Multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) reinforced polyvinylacetate nanocomposites (PVAc) have been investigated. Optimal technological parameters for manufacturing of the PVAc/MWCNT nanocomposites by solution casting are defined. Some physical, calorimetric, thermo gravimetric and electrical properties of the investigated PVAc/MWCNT nanocomposites are revealed. Electrical properties of the PVAc/MWCNT nanocomposites are significantly improved already at negligible MWCNT volumetric content. Obtained level of conductivity is sufficient for both antistatic purposes and electrostatic charge mitigation.
