Effect of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes on Thermal Properties of Polyester Composites
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents the effect of different contents of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) on the specific heat and coefficient of thermal expansion of polyester composites. By adding small content of SWCNT in the matrix of the polyester, the specific heat increase compared to pure polyester. For a content higher than 0.15 wt% SWCNT, the coefficient of thermal expansion increases compared with pure polyester on cooling curve.
