NANOCOMPOSITE

MATERIALS

Our nanoadditives consist of quantum materials, designed for seamless incorporation within epoxy, fibre glass, metals, aggregate, ceramic and carbon fibre composite systems in order to enhance their durability, wear resistance and service lifetime.

The need for extensive service lifetime is particularly crucial for both safety, reliable performance in remote locations and especially, in circumstances where resources are minimal and maintenance is desirably kept to an essential minimum, without compromising system efficiency.

THE CHALLENGES

A major challenge encountered during the preparation of polymer matrix nanocomposites, is the ability to achieve a homogeneous dispersion of nanofillers, within the polymer. 

Micrometer-sized clump agglomeration of in particular large nanoparticles (often > 30 nm in size) used in heavy loads tend to generate adverse effects on the thermal and mechanical properties of an epoxy, as a smaller number of reinforcing particles are present in other areas and aggregates may act as defect centers, which can act as crack initiators that lead to structural failure of the composite. Hence, this does not represent the true properties of a desired nanocomposite.


WHY NANOARCHITECTURED QUANTUM MATERIALS ?

Quantum materials are nanomaterials that typically have at least one dimension in the sub 20 nm size range and a very high surface area, which enables their usage in very minute quantities. A reduced load with increased strength provides an opportunity to create robust, lightweight composite systems. 

With the implementation of synthesis routes to modify the crystal structure (atomic architecture/nanoarchitecture) of quantum materials, their performance and properties can be enhanced substantially beyond conventional size-induced properties.


EPOXY REINFORCEMENT

It is known that adding small quantities of nanoparticles for the reinforcement of composites enables a substantial qualitative improvement in the strength and stiffness of polymers. Composites with nanoparticle reinforced components are perceived to be an essential key addition to the longterm enhancement of rotor materials of the future.


HOW QUANTUM MATERIALS ACHIEVE IT

The presence of atomically-architectured quantum materials dispersed as nanoscopic fillers within an epoxy polymer potentiate a substantial enhancement in the tensile stress-strain behaviour of epoxy polymers as well as fracture resistance. 

As the tensile load increases, a composite matrix tries to elongate in its usual way. However, the nanoscopic quantum material nanofillers resist such a deformation. This resistance to deformation resides in a lower extension at break which results from frictional restraints caused by the higher surface area of quantum materials, which enhance the interaction between them and the resin. This then results in a smaller deformation, enabling nanocomposites to sustain more loads and contribute to a higher tensile modulus than currently achievable in contemporary systems. 

In addition to increased strength, further unique properties of quantum materials can be adopted, to diversify the functionality of composite systems e.g. increased radiation protection, enhanced heat transport, waterproofing, corrosion resistance and increased abrasion protection of for example, rotor blades.
