Abstract


The search for alternative, cost effective and better properties’ polymers is being continued to accomplish an increasing world wide demand in the field of materials. The hybridization of polymers and fillers is a quick and practical technique for development of new materials having improved properties. The discovery of nanomaterials has made possible to produce polymer composites having much lower filler concentrations with superior properties such as light weight, electrical, thermal and mechanical properties etc. Due to their high aspect ratio (surface/area ratio) and low density, they may be used as replacements for conventional fibers and  fillers in polymer matrices. The following paper is a quick review for rheological  properties  of  polyolefin  composite  using  rheometer  especially highlighted  on  graphene  and carbon nanotubes nanocomposite
