Preparation And Characterization Of LDPE/CNT
LDPE/CNT composite with 10 wt% CNT content was analyzed under SEM and TEM which resulted uniform
CNT dispersion in LDPE matrix. Electrical tests showed enhanced conductivity achieved for LDPE/CNT composites with
CNT addition and frequency raise. DC of composites increased with increasing CNT content up to 3 wt%. Young's modulus
and tensile strength of composites augmented by 96% and 60, when nano tube addition reached 10 wt%. DSC of LDPE/CNT
composites improved in crystalline contents compared with pure LDPE resulted into enhanced LDPE/CNT composites
thermal stability and hardness. LDPE thermal decomposition was shifted by 87°C on addition of 10 wt% CNT.
