In this article, MWNTs were modified by three methods: by oxidizing the tubes and opening both ends, by filling with Ag, and by grafting with hexamethylene diamine. The effects of the modification and interfacial interaction between the modified nanotubes and epoxy matrix on the dielectric behavior and mechanical properties were investigated.
Ethacure 420 from Albemarle Corp., Baton Rouge, La., is an aromatic diamine that can be used with other products of this type (such as Albemarle's Ethacure 100) to add cure-time flexibility.
The polyamide is produced by the polycondensation of a diamine component containing 70 mol % or higher of mxylylenediamine and a dicarboxylic acid component containing 70 mol % or higher of a C4-C20 [alpha],[omega]-linear aliphatic dicarboxylic acid, or comprising at least one layer made of the polyamide resin composition.
