A Study of Test for Polyethylene / Modified Montmorillonite Nanocomposites


Article Preview

This study have used three different montmorillonite by anionic, nonionic and ammonium chloride modifier to prepare polyethylene / montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposites. The kneading process doped modified MMT to polyethylene, according with ASTM D638 to proceed hot-press works, and ASTM D256 to determine the izod pendulum impact resistance of plastics specimen. Prepared nanocomposites continue proceed in tensile and impact testing, finally, we observed low-density polyethylene layered silicate nanocomposites properties were improved, also found that anion modified montmorillonite had significant reinforcement effect in tensile and impact testing.
