Abstract: The focus of this research was to investigate the use of Multi Walled newlineCarbon Nanotubes MWCNTs as reinforcements with pure epoxy for creating newlinemultifunctional material The unique mechanical properties such as high newlinestrength ductility and stiffness as well as their geometrical characteristics of the newlinecarbon nanotubes CNTs were the vital motivation for this study The newlineresearchers combined the MWCNTs with pure epoxy which are the bulk newlinestructural material used in aerospace marine sport goods and textile machinery newlineindustry When compared to other composite materials a limited amount of newlineresearch has been conducted on epoxy MWCNTs nanocomposites newlineIn the present study the real potential of MWCNTs as reinforcing in newlineepoxy composites has been exploded in addition the weight fraction of carbon newlinenanotubes has been investigated with special attention to the tribology newlineapplications The dry sliding wear and friction behavior of epoxy reinforced newlinewith Multi walled Carbon Nanotubes MWCNTs were investigated using pin newlineon disc machine The MWCNTs with the weight fraction of 0 1wt 0 5wt newline1 25wt 2 5wt and 5wt in the epoxy MWCNTs were used in this study A newlinepin of 6mm diameter as epoxy MWCNTs nanocomposites was slide against steel newlinedisc at a speed of 200rpm under the load of 30N 60N and 90N Wear newlineperformance was observed with the sliding distance of 942m in 30min newline newline
