Description: Abstract: In this paper, we study the influence of the addition of small amounts of nanomagnetic fluids in resins, some specific properties of these fluids and the possibility to produce a new category of magnetisable nanocomposite materials. The research was focused on the compatibility between the various types of nanomagnetic fluids and resins. Samples were prepared varying the resins, carrier liquids and volume fraction of magnetic nanoparticles. The polymerisation process of nanocomposites was investigated under the influence of applied magnetic field. Results of investigations presented in this paper refer to the microstructure of the samples (optical and/or electronic microscopy), and to the mechanical properties corresponding to different preparation methods (three points bending test, elastic properties, gel time determination).
