Abstract: Numerous research efforts have been undertaken regarding the mechanical and electrical behavior of epoxy matrix by the introduction of various carbon nanofillers. In the present work, a simple but novel route regarding preparation of nanocomposites has been reported in terms of curing them at low temperature. The purpose is to investigate the effect of reinforcing strategies on properties of prepared composites using different nanomaterials that are again supplemented by microscopic investigations. Flexural properties, hardness and electrical conductivity of nanocomposites improved significantly than epoxy. Among the two nanocomposites, ACNT composite demonstrated enhanced results that were again confirmed from micro graphical analysis. CNF composite exhibited comparatively lower mechanical result but almost equivalent electrical result with ACNT composite.
