Partially cured epoxy/SWCNT thin films for the reinforcement of vacuum-assisted resin-transfer-molded composites Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • An approach to strategically introduce carbon nanotubes (CNTs) into epoxy to prepare epoxy/CNT composites has been developed. CNTs can be placed at locations of interest inside a vacuum-assisted resin-transfer-molded composite, thus allowing for optimized composite reinforcement at lower cost. Moreover, it helps avoid viscosity related processing issues due to the addition of CNTs to epoxy. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
