Impact of sonication on the electrical properties of epoxy-clay composites

Matheson, TN, Vaughan, AS, Cooper, J and Minigher, A (2008) Impact of sonication on the electrical properties of epoxy-clay composites CONFERENCE RECORD OF THE 2008 IEEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON ELECTRICAL INSULATION, VOLS 1 AND 2, pp. 219-222.

Record type: Article


The electrical and rheological properties of epoxyclay composites based on organically modified/unmodified boehmite and unmodified montmorillonite has been explored. A comparison between sonicated and unsonicated samples has been carried out using standard electrical breakdown and couette rheology techniques. An increase in breakdown strength was seen for all sonicated samples which correlates with lower viscosity readings compared to that of unsonicated samples.
