Living Polymer, Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) produced by the Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization ATRP is used at aerospace industry. As these materials are light and durable and have a considerable potential for the High Altitude Aircraft (HAA) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. The aim of the project is the development of light, durable, Multi-Phase Self-Healing (MPSH), polymer matrix, nanocomposite material and improvement of the material properties for desired applications. Usage of such materials at LEO satellite and HAA aircraft takes a lot of attention.
Durable MPSH nanocomposite against physical conditions will be produced by continuous evaluation of mechanical properties with tension, compression, impact and hardness tests. As such material will be subject to natural radiation environment at space and atmosphere during its service life with long-haul flights; the effect of the radiation environment on the MPSH nanocomposite will be evaluated. Also, natural radiation environments have the capacity to affect the physical properties of the material. On board, radiation sources can change the MPSH nanocomposite.
