ResumenThis paper compares the filler percolation network of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) grown by chemical vapor deposition and thermally reduced functionalized graphene sheets (FGSs) in an epoxy resin. The filler network was evaluated by the plate-plate rheological response of un-cured dispersions and the electrical properties of cured materials. We found that FGS did not raise the viscosity of the system as much as MWCNT, maintaining the Newtonian behavior even at 1.5 wt.% FGS. MWCNT readily formed a filler network compared to FGS, evidenced by lower electrical and rheological percolation thresholds, presence of yield stress and higher storage modulus of the dispersions. On the other hand, the mechanical performance of the cured FGS nanocomposites outperformed the MWCNT, with enhancements of 50% and 15% of Young's modulus and strength, respectively. This combination of good processing properties with low viscosity and enhanced mechanical properties makes FGS great candidates to develop multifunctional polymer materials.
