Properties and toughening of silica nanoparticle- and carbon nanotube-modified epoxy polymers

The present work investigates the material properties of a thermosetting epoxy polymer modified with various reinforcements of micron-sized glass beads and rubber particles, and nano-sized silica particles and carbon nanotubes. The Young’s modulus of the modified epoxies with rigid additives was sig...
