Enhancement of mechanical properties strongly

This preview shows page 1 - 3 out of 3 pages.

Enhancement of mechanical properties strongly corresponds to strong adhession force of silica with the matrix and it influnced by well-disperse silica particles on the whole surface of composite. Thermal characterization and analysis of major functional group of the composites were also performed and described in this paper.

INTRODUCTION In materials research, very rapid development of polymer nanocomposites appears on the various multidisciplinary sciences with wide applications that have many advantages for industry. Polymer nanocomposite is a polymer that has been reinforced with small quantity (less than 5% by weight) of nano-sized particles. Nanocomposites are a new class of materials that have high physical, thermal, and mechanical properties compared with conventional composites (microcomposites), due to the much stronger interfacial interactions between the dispersed nano-sized particles and the matrix. Polyester is a long-chain polymer which chemically composed of an ester, a dihydric alcohol and a terephthalic acid, formed by the esterification condensation of polyfunctional alcohols and acids. Unsaturated polyesters refer to that family of

    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.
