Abstract

Various kinds of nanofillers were added to improve the mechanical performance of carbon fiber/polypropylene composites. Nanofillers were well dispersed by a twin-screw extruder. The pellets including nanofiller were compounded with carbon fiber in the same condition. The addition of nanofiller significantly affects the modulus and strength of composites. It was found that the effects of nanofillers for the performance of composites depend on the filler species and filler content. Optimum filler content was found around 1 wt%.
