Dynamic Mechanical Tests on Magnesium Catalyzed Cast Polyamide 6 Composites Having Different Additives


Article Preview

Due to the effect of graphite and montmorrilonit additives, the impact strenght slightly decreases, but by the influence of softening material, the value of impact strength can be three times more than the pure PA6. It is determined that graphite can be added until 3%, montmorrilonit can be added until 6% and softening material can be added until 15% to the base matrix. These samples give basis for special characteristics examinations.
