Effect of Filler Parameter on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Titanium Dioxide Reinforced Epoxy Composites

Abstract

Titanium dioxide reinforced epoxy composites are developed by simple mechanical stirring and
compression molding technique respectively. Investigation on mechanical and morphological characteristics
of titanium dioxide reinforced epoxy composite is presented. The effect of titanium dioxide taken as different
weight fractions and their interactive influences on the mechanical and morphological characteristics of
these composites has been studied. X-Ray diffraction observation indicates that the composite changes its
state from amorphous to crystalline behavior with increasing the filler loading. The study revealed that
titanium dioxide particle addition in epoxy composite has dramatic effect on mechanical properties i.e.
tensile, flexural, impact. The composite exhibit improved mechanical property with the increase of filler
loading as the property of the composite mainly depends on dispersion condition of filler particles.
