Abstract

Epoxy is used in many dental and medical applications such as manufacturing prostheses. This polymer is not toxic and is a good candidate for easily forming of artificial hand, leg, etc. In recent years, the recycled waste tire has been concerned as inexpensive modifier for improving the toughness characteristics of many thermoset resins such as epoxy. Herein, the influence of addition of nanoclay on mechanical characteristics of waste tire-modified epoxy was investigated. Mechanical properties i.e. compressive and flexural characteristics, fracture toughness and impact strength of the samples were investigated. The fracture surfaces of the specimens were examined using scanning electron microscope (SEM). Moreover the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the samples were measured. Results reveal that nanoclay can improve the mechanical characteristics of waste tire-modified epoxies. © IDOSI Publications, 2012.
