Unformatted text preview: properties of the high-performance fluoroelastomers. This is especially true for fluoropolymer/graphene nanocomposites. No studies and results can be found on this type of nanocomposites in the open literature. On the other hand, though many studies of TPEs have been carried out, the influence of nanofillers on mechanical and thermal properties of high performance TPE systems, i.e., fluorothermoplastic elastomer (F-TPE), still needs to be further investigated. Further, the effects of nanofillers on dynamic vulcanization of F-TPE and on morphology of the resulting F-TPE nanocomposites also deserve an in-depth investigation. In this study, different types of nanofillers were employed to reinforce the fluoroelastomer. Their effects of the nanofillers on curing kinetics, mechanical and...
