Abstract

Epoxy has been often used with reinforcements due to its brittle nature. Various reinforcing agents have provided a multitude of composites with their own unique characteristics. Graphene is perhaps one of the most inspiring discoveries in the field of science and technology since its potential applications are limitless due to its admirable properties. It is basically an allotrope of carbon, a single layer of atoms bonded in a honeycomb lattice. Among the various other nano fillers, graphene has been used as reinforce epoxy which is then further strengthened with alumina. Composites have been designed and redesigned throughout the years, developing more and more advanced materials for engineering applications. But there’s always a need for a material with higher performance at lower cost in every aspect of technology. The aim of this review is to put forth information regarding the materials used for developing a hybrid composite using alumina, graphene and epoxy. This is done in order to boost the performance of the existing epoxy resin, which will be then tested for its mechanical characteristics. The result of the experiment will be compared with a standard specimen consisting of graphene and epoxy. The materials and their properties, along with tests conducted on them are covered in this paper
