Abstract

Effect of incorporation of nano-size clay particles on the flexural properties of syntactic foams is studied in the present work. Nanoclay particles are incorporated in syntactic foams in the volume fraction of 2 and 5%. Total volume fraction of glass microballoons and nanoclay is maintained at 0.65. Three-point bending tests are carried out in accordance to the standards ASTM D790-02. Flexural strength is found to increase with nanoclay content.
