Abstract

The present paper discusses the improvement brought about in the strength and thermal stability of the unidirectional glass fiber reinforced epoxy composites through the incorporation of nano TiO2. The hybrid nano composites are fabricated through wet lay-up technique and a recurred under pressure and static loading at room temperature.The TiO2 is added in 1,2,3,4 and 5 wt% in order to arrive at the optimum wt% of nano TiO2 for improvement in the desired properties such as bend strength, tensile strength and composite toughness
