Mechanical properti unsaturated polyester nanocomposites modified with clay
What is it about?
Polymer composite are being widely used to replace metals in many critical areas. Hence it is of utmost importance to study the mechanical behavior of polymeric composites. Nanofillers have now emerged as the ultimate reinforcing agents for polymers.Mechanical behavior of unsaturated polyester ) at various concentrations of amino modified kaolin clay are evaluated. Amino modification is used for making the nanoclay surface hydrophobic
Why is it important?
Nanocomposite based on polyester resin has been reported to exhibit improved mechanical, thermal and chemical properties. Much of the work in this area has been done on Montmorillonite and silica based composites. No known reports are available on composites with cheaper and more easily available kaolin clay as the nano reinforcement, especially with respect to mechanical properties.
