Development of TGDDM Based Layered Silicate Nanocomposites for High Performance Applications

Abstract

This chapter presents an investigation on TGDDM containing tetraglycidyl epoxy nanocomposites to find its suitability for use in high-performance applications. The synthesis and characterization of the TGDDM epoxy resin denoted as “A” were done. Nanoclay-based layered silicate nanoreinforcement denoted as “N1” was incorporated into the synthesized epoxy resin. Curing was done with diaminodiphenylmethane (DDM) and bis(3-aminophenyl)phenylphosphine oxide (BAPPO) curing agents denoted as X and Y, respectively. The mechanical, thermomechanical, flame retardancy, water absorption, and morphological studies were carried out, and the results are presented.
