Effects of Impregnation of Organoclay in the Thermo-Physico-Mechanical Properties of Recycled Composite Aluminates as Barrier Material
This paper provides information on the effects of organoclay (OC) impregnation in the thermal, physical and mechanical properties of recycled composite materials. The raw material was a flexible industry trimmings from a food packaging manufacturing plant. Various material testing standards were employed to determine the properties of the recycled materials. Results showed that the recycled material has significant effect in retarding the linear rate of burning due to the yielded ρ – value equal to zero (0). The resistance factors showed that the recycled material is potential as insulation, barrier, or roofing tile. These information is an indication that impregnation of OC enhanced the recycled material to be thermal resistant, gas and water vapor barrier and as potential barrier material.
