  1. Multi-functional nanocomposite materials with high-temperature polymer resin matrice

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Composites that are reinforced with well-dispersed carbon nanotubes have been shown to improve the performance of polymers in many areas such as stiffness, heat distortion temperature, control of thermal coefficient of expansion, and corrosion resistancein extreme environments. However, much of the nanocomposite related research and development has not been directly relevant to carbon fiber reinfo ...
