Shear stiff, surface modified, mica-like nanoplatelets: a novel filler for polymer nanocomposites

Author affiliations

Abstract

Synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with novel shear stiff, mica-like nanoplatelets from a synthetic layered silicate is presented. This novel synthetic clay filler shows high aspect ratios while organophilization may be selectively restricted to external surfaces minimizing the organic content of the filler. The obtained nanocomposite shows superior mechanical, thermal and fire properties as compared to commonly used natural clays. Furthermore, the influence of the blending method on the nanocomposite properties was investigated.
