"AN INVESTMENT IN KNOWLEDGE ALWAYS PAYS THE BEST INTEREST" BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
In the present work, 1 mm thick 7075-T6 quality aluminum sheet, one-sided carbon fiber (unidirectional) fabric and epoxy resin were used as matrix material and Fiber Metal Laminated (FML) composite materials suitable for 4/3 assembly were produced. In the first production, epoxy resin was used without additives. In the second production, 0.2%, 0.5% and 1% graphite, clay and SiO2 nanoparticles were added to the epoxy resin, respectively. The production of 7075-T6 aluminum matrix graphite, clay and SiO2 nanoparticle reinforced hybrid laminated composite materials was carried out at 120°C and 1 ton pressure for 3 hours in a Hot Press Series branded hot pressing device.
