The main aim of the present work is to study the mechanical and thermal properties of nanocomposite materials based on epoxy resin (ER) matrix reinforced with carbon black (CB) nanoparticles. The filler concentration was systematically varied from 0.1 up to 2.0 w/w %. Thermogravimetric/Differential Thermal Analysis (TGA/DTA) and Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) measurements were carried out. The influence of filler content on the thermomechanical properties of the systems studied was also of particular interest.
