Halloysite nanotubes as polyolefin fillers

Polimery 2015, No 6, 359


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2015.359

Summary

Halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) are apromising type of naturally occurring fillers for polymers. We review the recent progress in HNTs characterization, methods of their modification, as well as the morphology and mechanical properties of polyolefin/HNT nanocomposites. Modified HNTs well dispersed in apolyolefin matrix bring an improvement to the mechanical properties of nanocomposites. It seems that the connection of well-known advantages of polyolefins with unique properties of HNTs may result in the large-scale utilization of this type nanocomposite.
