Electrical Properties of Graphene / Natural Rubber Nanocomposites Coated Nylon 6.6 Fabric under Cyclic Loading
In the present study, an elastomeric nanocomposite was prepared by two roller mixing mill with the Natural Rubber (NR) and Nano Graphene Platelets (NGP). The Nylon 6.6 cord fabrics were laminated with the prepared NR/NGP nanocomposite layers. The NR/NGP composites and Nylon 6.6 cord fabric laminated nanocomposite plates were cured at 165 °C for 10 min under pressure. Nylon 6.6 fabric reinforced NR/NGP nanocomposites were electrically characterized under free and cyclic loading conditions. NGP addition to NR improved the electrical conductivity. Under cyclic loading produced nanocomposite and cord fabric layered plates showed periodical sensing behavior with same amplitude in each period.
