materials filled with multiwalled carbon nanotubes
(MWCNT) and nanoclay have been fabricated and characterize for thermo-mechanical properties. Thermo gravimetric analysis
(TGA) show that the stability of the friction
composites increased with increase in MWCNT and nanoclay contents. Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) of the composite have been carried out to characterize the storage modulus (E′), loss modulus (E″) and damping factor (Tan δ) as a function of temperature. The storage and loss modulus show a maxima at lower content of MWCNT and nanoclay.
