Polyamide 6/ organomontmorillonite nanocomposites based on waste materials (in English)
Polimery 2011, No 5, 397
The article reports research on waste polyamide 6 and organomontmorillonite nanocomposites. The composites were prepared utilizing masterbatches in a twin screw co-rotating extruder. X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies revealed the exfoliation of layered silicates in polymer matrix. Tensile tests proved that the addition of five per cent of the organomontmorillonite may be regarded as a facile and cheap approach to improve the mechanical properties of waste polyamide 6.
Key words: polyamide 6, organomontmorillonite, nanocomposites, recycling
