Preparation and Damping property Study of Styrene-Acrylic IPN/Mt Nano-composite Material
In the emulsion system, styrene, acrylate monomers and montmorillonite (Mt) were used to prepare interpenetrating polymer network/montmorillonite (IPN/Mt) nano-composite. X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) were used to characterize the structure and damping property of the new material. Results of XRD and TEM showed that the layer structure of Mt was destroyed and Mt dispersed in the polymer matrix by single layer. The result of DMA indicated that the damping property of Styrene-Acrylic IPN/Mt was much better than that of Styrene-Acrylic IPN. Damping value of the Styrene-Acrylic IPN/Mt was well improved and the maximum of tanδ increased from 0.621 to 0.739, with a broad damping domain ranging from -41°C to 140+°C. All these findings indicated that styrene-acrylate IPN /Mt nano-composite of broad damping temperature range and high damping value was successfully prepared.
