Stainless steel (STS) films were annealed in a thermal quartz tube and covered with graphene to improve their anticorrosive properties. Graphene was synthesized via the chemical vapor deposition method and transferred onto the surface of the STS film by the layer-by-layer approach. The structure of the STS film changed from alpha-Fe to gamma-Fe after annealing at 700 C for 1 h, resulting in an increase of 82.72% in the inhibition efficiency. However, one-layer graphene acted as a conductive pathway and therefore deteriorated the anticorrosive properties of the STS film. To overcome this problem, graphene was transferred layer by layer onto the STS film. It was found that transfer of three layers of graphene onto the STS film resulted in a 91.57% increase in the inhibition efficiency. Therefore, thermal annealing and transfer of multilayer graphene are considered to be effective in enhancing the anticorrosive properties of STS films.


Effect of CNT impregnation on the mechanical and thermal properties of C/C-SiC composites
Tulbez, Simge; ESEN, ZİYA; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (2020-06-01)
The present study investigates the effect of additional carbon source, in the form of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), on mechanical and thermal properties of carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide (C/C-SiC) ceramic matrix composites (CMC) produced by liquid silicon infiltration (LSI) technique. The CNTs used in this study were impregnated into the C/C preforms before the liquid silicon infiltration stage. The results showed that the addition of excess carbon to the C/C preforms in the form of CNTs enhanced Si inf...
Effects of RTM mold temperature and vacuum on the mechanical properties of epoxy/glass fiber composite plates
Kaynak, Cevdet; Isitman, Nihat Ali (2008-08-01)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of mold temperature, application of vacuum at resin exit ports, and initial resin temperature on the mechanical properties of epoxy matrix woven glass fiber reinforced composite specimens produced by resin transfer molding (RTM). For this purpose, six mold temperatures (25, 40, 60, 80, 100, and 120 degrees C), two initial resin temperatures (15 and 28 degrees C), and vacuum (0.03 bar) and without vacuum (similar to 1 bar) conditions are utilized. Speci...
Effect of Microfiber Reinforcement on the Morphology, Electrical, and Mechanical Properties of the Polyethylene/Poly(ethylene terephthalate)/Carbon Nanotube Composites
Yesil, Sertan; Koysuren, Ozcan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2010-11-01)
In situ microfiber reinforced conductive polymer composites consisting of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET), and multiwalled carbon nanotube (CNT) were prepared in a twin screw extruder followed by hot stretching of PET/CNT phase in HDPE matrix. For comparison purposes, the HDPE/PET blends and HDPE/PET/CNT composites were also produced without hot stretching. Extrusion process parameters, hot-stretching speed, and CNT amount in the composites were kept constant during the ...
Effect of Cu addition on the microstructural constituents and mechanical properties of twin roll cast AlFeMnSi alloys
Meydanoglu, Onur; Birbaşar, Onur; Ulus, Ali; Beyhan, Bariş; Kalay, Yunus Eren (2015-01-01)
In this study, the effect of copper addition on microstructural evolution, mechanical and corrosion properties of twin roll cast (TRC) AlFeMnSi alloy system mainly used in container foil applications was investigated. Microstructural characterization studies were conducted on as-cast, homogenization annealed and final products by employing optical and scanning electron microscopes. The mechanical properties of the samples obtained from compositional were determined at the thickness of final product by tensi...
Effect of CNTs dispersion on electrical, mechanical and strain sensing properties of CNT/epoxy nanocomposites
Tanabi, Hamed; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-01)
The remarkable electrical and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) render CNT-reinforced nanocomposites as potentially attractive materials for strain-sensing and monitoring purposes. The dispersion state of CNTs in polymeric matrix has a significant role on the physical and the mechanical properties of the resulting CNT reinforced nanocomposites. In this study, a series of experiments were designed to investigate the effect of dispersion process parameters and CNT concentration, as well as thei...
