Abstract

This paper discusses the processing of a hybrid of TPNR-Nano-sized silicon carbide (SiC)-Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) nanocomposites with different percentages of filler to determine the optimum mechanical properties of the hybrid nanocomposites. Five types of hybrid nanocomposites were with various SiC-MWCNTs compositions which are HI (3%wt SiC+ 0%wt MWCNTs), H2 (0%wt SiC+ 3%wt MWCNTs) and H3 (l%wt SiC+2%wt MWCNTs), H4 (1.5%wt SiC+ 1.5%wt MWCNTs) and H5 (2%wt SiC+ l%wt MWCNTs). The result of tensile test showed that tensile strength and Young's modulus increase at H4 compared with pure TPNR matrix and other hybrid nanocomposites also higher than TPNR composite with any single filler system (MWCNTs or SiC). On other hand, the elongation at break considerably decreased with increasing the hybrid nano-fillers for all the hybrid systems. The improved dispersion of hybrid filler can be obtained due to altered interparticle interactions, SiC-SiC and MWCNTs-MWCNTs networks are well combined to generate the synergistic effect of hybrid filler system as shown by SEM micrographs which is improved the mechanical properties significantly.
