Glass reinforced epoxy composites filled with various compositions (1, 3, 5 and 7%) of cloisite clay particles were prepared. The as-prepared samples of unfilled or neat epoxy glass fibre composites and clay particles reinforced composites were tested for their morphological and mechanical properties. The morphological behaviour was investigated by the use of scanning electron microscope for visualizing the distribution of nanoclay in the epoxy matrix. The homogeneity dispersion of the nanoclay ...

The present investigation compares the results of different fillers in terms of the physical, mechanical, and thermal characteristics of epoxy polymers. These epoxy hybrid composites were produced using a mechanical stirring-assisted wet lay-up method with coir microparticles, fly ash, titanium carbide (TiC) nanoparticles, and Innegra fabrics by mechanical stirring with a stirring rod. The tensile, flexural, and interlaminar shear characteristics of the fabricated epoxy hybrid composites were de...
