ABSTRACT
In this study mechanical properties of silicone resin polymer composites filled with
different amounts expanded graphite (EG) were studied. An equipment is designed and manufactured for testing at elevated temperatures. A method is developed for
determining the mechanical properties under compression of composite materials based on expanded graphite in the range of operating temperatures. Mechanical tests at 20 and 400 °C.
