Kevlar coated carbon nanotubes for reinforcement of polyvinylchloride

Author affiliations

Abstract

Kevlar coated carbon nanotubes have been used as additives to polyvinylchloride, resulting in composites with improved mechanical properties demonstrating up to 50% and 70% increases in tensile strength and Young's modulus respectively at very low nanotube loading levels.
