31 Post curing of the FC2260 and its nanocomposites was performed by pressing mixed material into sheet (1.5 mm × 40mm× 40mm) at 242 o C using a compression mold and a hot press machine (Model 3851-0, Carver Inc.). The temperature and press pressure (2 × 10 3 psi) were maintained for 24 h to make sure the fluoroelastomer was fully cured (Dyneon technical information). The obtained sheets were used for further characterizations. The formulations of all the prepared FC2260 nanocomposites are listed

Unformatted text preview: in Table 2.1. Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) was carried out on a DMA Q800 dynamic mechanical analyzer (TA instruments) using a single cantilever configuration. Samples for DMA measuring were cut from above prepared sheets of fully cured FC2260 nanocomposites. All samples were tested from -60 to 120 o C at a ramp rate of 3 o C/min and a frequency of 1 Hz. Oscillating strain was set at 0.02% for all tests....
