Abstract

In this study, multi-layered-graphene (MLG) reinforced unsaturated polyester (UP) were prepared by adding different weight percentage of graphene in polyester resin and subsequently cross linked using mixture of methyl ethyl ketone peroxide. The mechanical properties of polyester-graphene were also studied. The maximum increase Tg was obtained from 80.85°C to 87.59°C in case of 0.7 wt%. The Vickers microhardiness (HV) was increased up to 116% compared to monolithic polyester. Flexural modulus of 0.7 wt% reinforcement recorded the highest modulus with 1.19Gpa. It was found that the addition of multi-layered graphene significantly improved the dynamic and mechanical properties of the composites.
