09), pp. 523526, October 2009. View at: Publisher Site Google Scholar See...600μm size of natural silica sand was ground to nanoparticles using dry ball milling with zirconia balls as grinding media with different steps of sieve analysis. This high energy milling was known as one of the top down nanoparticles type approach, which generally relies on physical methods for their production. Different particles sizes went through a precise sieve analysis . The analysis of silica sand nanoparticles had been verified using the ZetaSizer, Nano ZS analyzer. The nanoparticles results were also checked microscopically through FESEM. The chemical composition of silica sand nanoparticles was analyzed adopting XRF technique 8 1. T. Ahmad and O.

Epoxy SiO2 nanocomposites were successfully produced using Tronoh silica sand nanoparticles as reinforcement. The density of the epoxy SiO2 nanocomposites was increased from 1.157g/cm3 to 1.244g/cm3with an average increment of 1.796%. The mechanical properties of the nanocomposites decrease with the addition of silica sand nanoparticles due to improper mixing of the nanoparticles. SEM micrograph showed white and agglomerate zones on fracture surfaces which indicate that silica sand nanoparticles are not homogeneously dispersed in epoxy. A reduction in degree of crystallinity in epoxy based nanocomposites was observed with increasing trend of silica sand nanoparticles addition in epoxy as shown by DSC analysis.
