Abstract

Mechanical properties of plymeric materials are enhanced by homogeneously dispersing MWNTs/Cu powder mixture in the epoxy matrix. The MWNTs/Cu powder mixture has been synthesized by mechanical alloying process. Manually blended copper and MWNTs reinforced epoxy based composite exhibit less strength due to agglomeration and poor interfacial adhesion. On contrary, a homogeneous dispersion of MWNTs/Cu powders structure in epoxy matrix exhibit 86% increased specific strength than pure epoxy. In addition, un-implanted MWNTs in MWNTs/Cu powders structure play a bridging role between the adjacent sites of structure and demonstrate high-strength than copper and MWNTs reinforced composites.
