Investigation on the Rheological Behavior of Polyamide6/Montmorillonite Nanocomposites by Reactive Extrusion
The rheological behavior of PA6/montmorillonite(MMT) by reactive extrusion was investigated using cone-and-plate rheometer. The experimental results indicated that PA6/MMT exhibited shear-thinning behavior. The shear stress of both neat PA6 and PA6/MMT increased with the increase in the shear rate. The reduction of the viscous activation energy with the increase of shear stress reflected PA6/MMT can be processed over a wider temperature.
