Flammability and other properties of elastomeric materials and nanomaterials.
Part II. Nanocomposites of elastomers with attapulgite, nanosilica, nanofibres
and carbon nanotubes
Polimery 2013, No 7-8, 533
The paper is a continuation of literature review on thermal stability, flammability and mechanical properties of elastomeric nanocomposites containing montmorillonite clay, halloysite nanotubes, attapulgite as well as carbon nanotubes and nanofibres. The mechanism of degradation and thermal decomposition of elastomeric nanocomposites was examined from the point of view of: the type and amount of nanoaddititve, structure formed during the combustion of carbon layer, barrier properties of the nanoparticles as well as the interactions between a specific additive and reactive groups in the elastomer.
