Abstract:
For many years, silicone has been widely used in applications such as sealants,
adhesives, lubricants and medical implants, due to its favorable properties of good
flexibility, low surface tension, excellent electrical properties, good weatherproofing
ability, non-flammability, high gas permeability, as well as their stability toward heat and
chemicals. However, unfilled silicone elastomer usually has poor mechanical and low
electrical/ thermal conductive properties. Inorganic fillers such as fumed or precipitated
silica, carbon black, boron nitride have normally been used to improve the above
properties. Recently, carbon nanotube (CNT) has been used as a polymer composite filler
due to its advantages of high aspect ratio resulting from nanometer diameter, and micron
length and particularly high mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. The combined
advantages of carbon nanotubes as a filler and silicone as a matrix may bring
multifunctional properties such as high electrical/ thermal conductivity properties, high
flexibility, thermal stability and chemical resistivity into this nanocomposite which is
difficult to obtain using traditional inorganic fillers or other polymer matrices.
