Abstract: The motive of this research is to develop a new hybrid Nano composite on the surface of mild steel to eradicate the rate of corrosion that takes place on the surface of the mild steel and to enhance mechanical properties. For this, a hybrid Nano composite of Multi-Walled Carbon Nano Tube’s (MWCNT’s), Zinc Oxide (ZnO) Nano particles and Epoxy resin has been used to overcome the major disadvantage of mild steel which is corrosion. The mechanical property of mild steel is also increased. Ultra-sonication method is adopted for better dispersion of ZnO Nano particles and MWCNT’s. In this study, Ethanol is used for better dispersion. After applying the coating on the surface of newly developed Nano composite by using pneumatic gun spray method is used. FESEM was conducted to study the surface morphology of corroded surface of mild steel. The rate of anticorrosion and mechanical properties get improved by the application MWCNT’s/ZO Nano particles/Epoxy resin.
