GO/rGO as reinforcing nanofiller in aramid fiber/epoxy resin composite systems
Rights accessOpen Access
Compatibility between matrix and reinforcement plays an important role in final properties of composite materials, which is why many works are focused in modify- ing interfacial interactions between both components to achieve greater mechanical properties. In the present study, 0.3 wt% of GO/rGO particles are introduced in epoxy resin/aramid fiber composites to evaluate the capacity of GO/rGO as reinforcing fillers. XPS, SEM, TGA, tensile and flexural tests are utilized to characterize GO/rGO, aramid fiber, three epoxy resin matrix systems and all composites obtained. Enhancements of mechanical properties up to 80 % were achieved by combining digly- cidyl ether bisfenol A (DGEBA) + diglycidyl aniline (DGA) + m-xylendiamine matrix, aramid fiber reinforcement and GO/rGO.
