The incorporation of carbon nanotube buckypaper (BP) in prepregs can originate materials with higher properties than traditional nanostructured composites reinforced with carbon nanotubes (CNTs), especially when thermal, electrical, mechanical and electromagnetic properties are considered. In this way, the aim of this work consists of preparation and characterization of nanostructured composites of epoxi resin/glass fiber (GF)/buckypaper (BP). Firstly, the CNTs will be dispersed in water with subsequent vacuum filtration in order to obtain the buckypaper and then the characterization of epoxi resin/GF laminate will be performed by thermal analysis, such as Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). In the second stage of this research project, hot compression technique will be employed to prepared Epoxi/GF/BP multifunctional nanostructured composites. The characterization of the nanomaterial will be performed through optical and electronic microscopes (morphological characterization), thermal analysis (DMA (Dynamic mechanical analysis) and TGA), electrical conductivity and mechanical tests (Compression Shear Test (CST) and interlaminar shear ( ILSS)). Finally, the material will be characterized in band X (8.2 to 12.4 GHz) through measurements of magnetic permeability and electrical permissiveness parameters, the scattering parameters and the reflectivity measurements. This research project aims the nucleation and consolidation of nanostructured composites area at the Institute of Science and Technology of UNIFESP, Campus of São José dos Campos.
