Two-step casting method was developed for preparing quasi constrained layer damping structural polymeric composite. Quasi constrained layer structural piezoelectric ceramic P82/carbon black(CB)/epoxy resin(EP) composites were successfully prepared when the ceramic content was less than 30% in volume. Dynamic mechanical analysis(DMA) showed that the composites with quasi constrained layer structure exhibited perfect damping properties. When the piezoelectric ceramic P82 volume fraction was 10%, the composite showed the highest loss factor peak value of 1.182, the widest damping temperature range of 44.2°C, and the largest loss area of 32.17. The storage moduli of composites with quasi constrained layer structures were higher than that with non quasi constrained layer structure. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

A kind of new composite material composed of piezoelectric ceramic lead magnesium niobate-lead zirconate-lead titanate (PMN)/carbon nanofibers (CNFs)/epoxy resin (EP) were prepared by a resin casting method. The effects of carbon nanofibers on dielectric properties of PMN/CNFs/EP composites were investigated in this paper. The concetration of CNFs had significant effects on dielectric constant, dielectric loss, dielectric frequency dependence and dielectric temperature dependence of PMN/CNFs/EP composites. When the content of CNFs increased from 0 to 0.8 wt% of the epoxy resin, the dielectric constant at 1 kHz increased sharply from 13.6 to 158, and the dielectric loss increased from 0.0524 to 2.59. In plots of the dielectric constant against frequency and dielectric loss against frequency, the dielectric constant and dielectric loss reduced dramatically at lower frequency ranging from zero to about 10 5 Hz, then approach to be stable at frequency higher than 10 5 Hz. Moreover, as to the effects of temperature on dielectric constant and dielectric loss of PMN/CNFs/EP composites, the dielectric constant of composite increased ranging from 25°C to 160°C, and the dielectric loss of composite also showed increase besides that with CNFs content 0.8 wt%. © 2011 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Chlorinated butyl rubber composites were prepared by a compounding and vulcanizing process using phenolic resin (PF) as the vulcanizing agent and carbon black as filler. Instead of using the conventional vulcameter method to determine the vulcanizing parameters, the vulcanization temperature and time were obtained by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and tensile testing, respectively. Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) showed that, higher PF content resulted in higher E′ and lower tanδ, and variations of E′ and tanδ with temperature were consistent with the time-temperature equivalence principle. It is proposed that chlorinated butyl rubber using phenolic resin as the vulcanizing agent could be used as potential damping materials in the temperature range 20-100°C and frequencies 0.1-100 Hz. © 2014 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
