Nickel Nanoparticle-Filled High-Performance Polymeric Nanocomposites for EMI Shielding Applications

  • 29 Accesses

Abstract

In this paper, the electromagnetic interference shielding effectiveness (EMI-SE) of nickel (Ni) nanoparticle-filled high-performance polyetherketone (PEK) nanocomposites produced by using planetary ball milling followed by hot pressing were studied. Field emission scanning electron microscopy showed uniform dispersion of Ni nanoparticles in the PEK matrix. The EMI-SE of the nanocomposites was measured using a vector network analyzer in the frequency range of 8.2–12.4 GHz (X-band). The obtained results indicated that the Ni/PEK nanocomposites exhibit EMI-SE of more than 25 dB. The EMI-SE behavior is superiorly stable over the X-band. The dimensional stability and the Vickers microhardness of the nanocomposites improved by approximately 22% and 42%, respectively, compared to pure PEK. These results showed that the nanocomposites might be potential candidates for EMI shielding and antistatic devices.
