Soft robots have gained superiority in outdoor applications compared to traditional robots today. This advantage is clearly due to bio-inspiration and evolving material technology. The objective of this research is to use nanotechnology to improve material qualities. For this, silicone named DragonSkin 20 (DS20), which can be employed in soft robot applications, was selected as the matrix material, while functionalized multi-walled-carbon-nanotube (MWCNT) was utilized as an additive. One of the parameters that determine the mechanical properties is the change of curing behavior. The choice of mixing technique, on the other hand, is very crucial since it affects the curing behavior. For this reason, the effects of not only the additive but also the various mixing techniques on the material behavior and curing time were reported as a result of the experiments. The results showed that the mixing methodologies plays an important role on the mechanical properties and curing time of neat and MWCNT reinforced silicone.
