Non-Destructive Testing and Investigating Polymer Nanocomposites

As the usage of polymer nanocomposites in engineering material grows, so does the need for more stringent quality control and assurance to maintain and evaluate performance and efficiency.

Well-established worldwide regulations have been used to certify the mechanical characteristics of new-age products like polymer nanocomposites in the industries. To establish a relationship between production process variables and material qualities many tests are are performed, such as stress, compression, bending, contact, and dynamic tests.

So far, destructive testing procedures have proved capable of assessing any material's substantial characteristics. However, several restrictions, such as size effect, comparatively smaller coatings, and small-scale impact of impurities, must be examined for many engineering domains, such as electromagnetic, optics, and mechanics, to anticipate the stability of polymer nanocomposites.
