The mechanical, thermal, and dynamic mechanical properties of ternary nanocomposites based on polypropylene, short glass fibers, and exfoliated graphene nanoplatelets were studied. To investigate the mechanical properties, uniaxial tensile and Charpy impact tests were carried out. To study the crystallinity of the compositions, a DSC test was performed. A dynamic mechanical analysis was used to characterize the storage modulus and loss factor (tan δ). The morphology of the composites was studied by a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The results obtained are presented in tables and graphics.
