Modified nanofillers based on mine halloysite

This new group of fillers has a hybrid structure of type: inorganic core / organic envelope. Such construction of the filler improves its dispersibility and miscibility in polymeric matrices, especially in polymeric mixtures. Polymers filled with them, both thermo- and duroplasts, are characterized with very significant improvement in mechanical properties (first of all in impact strength and flexural strength).


A brief description of the technology

The modification of halloysite proceeds with the cladding method, using optimal recipes and process parameters.


Advantages of the technology offered

A new technology, no comparison.


Equipment

An ultrasonic bath, a reactor with the ability to take out the solvent of the modified compound, a dryer.
