Influence of material and processing parameters on carbon nanotube dispersion in polymer melts

G.R. Kasaliwal, T. Villmow, S. Pegel and P. Pötschke,     Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden, Germany

Abstract:

Melt processing of polymer–carbon nanotube (CNT) composites is of great industrial importance for the large-scale production of composite materials and desired products. The properties of these composites greatly depend on the quality of CNT dispersion. In this chapter, a broad overview of the influence of material and processing parameters on the dispersion of multi-walled CNTs in thermoplastic polymer matrices during melt processing is provided. The results discussed here are based on small-scale batch mixers as well as ...
