Abstract

A number of experiments have already shown that CNTs are integrally multifunctional and the addition of these substantially improves the mechanical, thermal, optical and electrical properties of low concentrations nanocomposites. CNTs possess unique electrical, mechanical and surface properties and utilization as filler for epoxy-based composites finds application in electronics, automobile, aircraft and numerous other industrial fields. The current challenges exist in sense of the processing technique for materials, owing to the typical small size and high specific surface area associated with CNTs. Upon mixing CNT into epoxy, entangled aggregates of CNTs are generate, leading to increased viscosity of CNT-epoxy system and thereby difficult processing. Another existing challenge involves the attainment of strong interface for effective load transfer between nanotubes and matrix because the transfer of load not only depends upon the interfacial shear stress acting between the matrix and the fibre but also between the matrix and CNTs. This assessment focuses over the techniques to overcome the above-mentioned oppositions, primarily utilizing the functionalization of CNTs because it would alter the CNT surface characteristics along with increasing its polarity, leading to covalent bond formation with epoxy matrix and thereby enhancing load-transfer efficiency. The fabrication routes have been established for achieving higher shear forces during fabrication of CNT filled epoxy composites and thereby ensuring uniform dispersion of nanotubes throughout the matrix along with acid treatments of reinforcing fibers for achieving quality interfacial adhesion.
