Description

This project is a senior thesis project for the year-long Plastics and Composites Engineering Senior Project Series. The goal of this work is to create a new material for structural 3D printing. This material will consist of benzoxazine resin as a base and carbon nanostructures (CNS) as a reinforcement, together making it a polymer nanocomposite. This nanocomposite material will be among the first of its kind and will be vital for the future of structural 3D printing. In order to make a quality nanocomposite, it has to have a 3D printable viscosity and remain dimensionally accurate after curing. This project aims to use various methods of raising the viscosity of benzoxazine in order to disperse CNSs uniformly to create dimensionally accurate 3D printed parts.
