Abstract: Cheetah skin carbon nanotube, a novel periodically patterned nanocarbon on CNT synthesized as a highly effective filler for fabrication of high performance composites. The advantage of newly developed morphology lies in the fact that the size of nanocarbon on CNT and their distance can be fully controlled based on the application requirements. Cheetah skin CNT shows an excellent thermal stability and dispersibility in a high density polyethylene (HDPE) compared to pristine CNT/HDPE composite, making cheetah skin CNT a suitable candidate for fabrication of high performance HDPE based composite. The addition of cheetah skin CNT into HDPE resulted in a composite with improved thermomechanical properties. Compared with the pure HDPE and HDPE/pristine CNT, storage modulus and loss modulus of HDPE/cheetah skin CNT improved significantly at low temperatures even with very low content of cheetah skin CNT. Also, the thermal stability of the cheetah skin CNT/HDPE was found to be significantly higher than that of pristine CNT/HDPE composite in both isothermal and non-isothermal degradation performed for composites.
