This paper reports successful fabrication and study of various properties of a unique blend based nanocomposite containing Unsaturated polyester (UPE) /Epoxidized soybean oil Acrylate (ESOA) resin(80:20w/w) with varying content of graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) as the reinforcing filler. The composite was prepared by a novel technique with the use of a high intensity ultrasonicator and then hot press casting method. Three different specimens of UPE/ESOA nanocomposites were fabricated with addition of 1, 3 and 5 wt% of GNPs. 3wt% nanofiller loading showed superior essential characteristics and after that the properties reduced may be due to the nucleating tendency of the nanofiller particles. UPE/ESOA reinforced with GNPs resulted in an enhancement of properties. Also the XRD pattern showed the compatibility of the GNPs by introducing a peak around 270 in the nanocomposites. FTIR spectroscopy and SEM Properties are also in agreement with the compatibility. Nanocomposite with 3wt% GNPs also showed remarkable enhancement in mechanical, dynamic mechanical, thermal and electrical properties with successful enhancement in Tg corroborated from DSC analysis owing to the homogeneous distribution of nanofiller in the blend. So by introduction of a small quantity of graphene nanoplatelets endow the new class of multiphase nanocomposites with inimitable structure and unexpected broaden applicability.

Experimental Study of Reinforced Composite comprises of the process of fabrication of reinforced composite by introducing aramid fibre and sawdust in the vinyl resin matrix in various proportions, in particular, with different weight fraction. And analysis of the test results of these samples is performed to understand the change in specific mechanical properties in accordance to the change in the fraction of fibre used in the resin.
