Title: Modification of Polypropylene/Glass Fiber Composites with Nanosilica
Author: George, K E; Jacob, Sinto; Suma, K K; Mendaz, Jude Martin; George, Abhilash
Abstract: Poly(propylene) (PP) reinforced with short glass fiber was modified with precipitated nanosilica (pnS) by melt mixing. The weight of the glass fiber was varied by keeping the pnS at optimum level. The properties of the composites were studied using universal testing machine, dynamic mechanic analyser (DMA), differential Scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermo gravimetric analyser (TGA). The amount of the glass fiber required for a particular modulus could be reduced by the addition of nanosilica.
