Water Vapor Permeability of Clay Nanocomposites Based on Amorphous PET
In this work nanocomposites based on amorphous poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PETg) were developed using melt intercalation. X-ray analysis performed on the PETg nanocomposites showed that intercalation and exfoliation took place during static mixing. The water vapor permeability of PETg nanocomposites was correlated to the volume fraction of the impermeable inorganic part of the omMMT.
