Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have attracted tremendous interest as a nano-filler for epoxy nanocomposites due to their excellent properties. The efficient reinforcement has been largely limited by the agglomeration of these nano-fillers within epoxy matrix. In this work, shear mixing followed by sonication is used to prepare CNT/epoxy composites. The epoxy reinforced with functionalized Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes (CNT/epoxy) composite was prepared by mixing (0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4) wt% FMWCNT with epoxy. The tensile properties, electrical conductivity and contact angle were measured. A remarkable improvement in the mechanical properties and electrical conductivity of epoxy composites is demonstrated.

Keywords: Epoxy, Mechanical Properties, Electrical conductivity, Nanocomposites, MWCNT /epoxy
