Assessment of Three Phase Nanocomposite with Electrospun Nanofibers

Sachin Chavan [2] | Dr. S. M. Shendokar [2]

Abstract: Electrospun nylon66 nanofibers of submicron diameter were used to for interlaminar reinforced in glass epoxy composite. Nylon 66 nanofibers (NFs) equivalent to 1 % weight were used to improve the interphase characteristics. This paper presents the comparison of interlaminar strength using SBS ASTM (D 2344) for composite produced by Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM) and by Hand Molding (HM) process. For both methods VARTM and HM, specimen with interlaminar NFs and without NFs was tested. It is observed that interlaminar with NFs improves in both VARTM and HM specimens. Further it was observed that better improvement in interlaminar shear strength (ILSS) is achieved in VARTM than HM.
