Preparation and characterization of epoxy resins filled

with submicron spherical zirconia particles

Polimery 2006, No 11-12, 794


Summary

Submicron spherical zirconia particles were synthesized and used as a reinforcement for epoxy resins. In fact, recent developments indicate that a significant improvement in the thermoset polymer performance may be obtained by using submicron inorganic filler. In this paper, different composites with weight fraction of the filler in the range 1-5% were prepared and characterized in terms of mechanical properties. A numerical model suitable for the description of such materials was set up and employed to estimate the properties as functions of the reinforcement content.


Key words: epoxy resin, submicron spherical zirconia particles, nanocomposite, elastic modulus, modelling
