The addition of nanosilica increases the polyester

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

The addition of nanosilica increases the polyester chain mobility allowing this segment to become more ordered in relation to the pure polymer. It has been shown that the introduction of the nanosilica up to 3 wt% can significantly enhance both tensile and elongation at break of polymer films.

Recently, polyester using unsaturated polyester resin (UPSR) reinforced using nano-sized silica particle is being developed. The effect of silica nanoparticle at low concentration on the formation of unsaturated polyester-based (UPR 108) composite was investigated in this study. The existing waste materials such as rice husk ash was utilized to synthesize silica nanoparticle. The composites were prepared by mechanical process and then characterized their physical properties such as mechanical, thermal and structural properties using appropriate instruments. The dispersion of silica in the matrix was observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and its effect on the overall characteristics such as mechanical, thermal and structural properties is discussed in this paper.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
