This paper covers the effect of nanocarbon black powder (N220) on the some
physical properties (thermal conductivity and water absorption) of unsaturated and
epoxy resins filled with nanocarbon black powder (N220). The polymer
nanocomposites, were prepared with (1 to 10 wt%) of carbon black nanoparticles
using ultrasonic wave bath machine dispersion method. The results had shown
thermal conductivity of unsaturated and epoxy resins improved by (131.37% and
78%) respectively, at 10wt. %. The water absorption reduction by (55.41% at 4 wt.%,
51.76% at 6 wt.%) for unsaturated polyester and epoxy nanocomposite, respectively.
