Abstract: These days the application and use of the composite products are rising exponentially in the various engineering fields due to their balanced characteristics because of the great strength to the weight ratio are the crucial characteristics. The purpose of this study/research is to develop an economical compound/composite material with improved mechanical & thermal characteristics. Styrene Acrylonitrile (ASN) is an economical, transparent (see through), rigid, chemically & thermally steady material. The stable material propose the solution with the assistance of Silver Nanoparticles (Ag-NP) & Graphene. The projected nanoparticle is ready by “One Step Melt Compounding Method” of SAN, Ag-NP & Graphene in co-rotating twin screw extruder in various lots with various weight fractions (wt. %) of the Ag-NP & graphene subsequently, and the specimen preparation was done by the compression modeling. Tensile test is executed to execute mechanical properties while Thermogravimetric study/Analysis (TGA) is done to consider/evaluate the thermal degradation temperature range. Assess of morphology of surface of the nanoparticle/nanocomposites is executed by the Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). These properties of material provides basis to design the product with greater mechanical & thermal characteristics.
