Use of Brazilian Clay in Nylon 6 with Different Molecular Weight Nanocomposites

Abstract:

Article Preview

The effect of nylon 6 (Ny6) molecular weight on the development of polymer/layered silicates nanocomposites prepared by the melt intercalation technique was studied in this work. The nylon6/organoclay nanocomposites were prepared in the counter-rotational twin screw extruder. The results of torque rheometry showed that the presence of organoclay in the nylon 6 increased the torque. The results of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) showed exfoliated and/or partially exfoliated structures.
