Effect of Thermal Exposure on Tensile and Fatigue Properties of Clay Reinforced Nylon Nanocomposites

Article Preview

In this paper, both nylon 6 and 2 wt% clay reinforced nylon 6 matrix nanocomposite were used for thermal exposure tests at temperatures of 80 oC and 120 oC and 150 oC, respectively. Then, the tensile tests and fatigue tests of the exposed specimens were conducted at room temperature. It was shown that the tensile strength in both nylon 6 and NCH-2 decreased with an increase in thermal exposure temperature. The brittle fracture occurred in the specimens exposed at 120 oC and 150 oC. After pre-oxidation treatment at 80 °C for 100 hours, the fatigue strength decreased 14% in nylon 6, and 8% in NCH-2. From this result, it was understood that the addition of clay in nylon 6 could suppress the decrease of fatigue strengths.
