TWA 33

Polymer Nanocomposites

The objective of this TWA is to address the measurement issues and challenges in the field of polymer nanocomposites (PNC) and their fillers. Through international interlaboratory comparison projects, it is hoped that accurate and reliable measurement methods for these materials will be established to support future international standardization.

Potential Project Areas

  1. Physical properties characterization:
    shape, size distribution, agglomeration /aggregation state, surface morphology/topography
  2. Chemical properties characterization:
    composition, surface chemistry
  3. Characterization of polymer nanocomposite morphology:
    quality dispersion and interaction of nanofiller
  4. Electrical and mechanical properties measurement

    Active Project

    • Determination of the shape, size and size distribution of nano-filler particles
