Abstract

Kinetix epoxy resin was filled with nanoclay to increase tensile properties of the composite for civil and structural applications by the Centre of Excellence in Engineered Fiber Composites (CEEFC), University of Southern Queensland (USQ). This project manufactured samples with different percentages by weight of nanoclay in the composites in steps of 1-wt%, which were then post-cured in an oven. The samples were then subjected to flexural tests. The results showed that composite with 3-wt% of nanoclay produces the maximum flexural strength, strain and modulus. It is hoped that the discussion and results in this work would not only contribute towards the development of nanoclay reinforced epoxy composites with better material properties, but also useful for the investigations of fracture toughness, tensile properties and flexural properties in other composites.
