Sepiolite needle-like clay for PA6 nanocomposites: An alternative to layered silicates?
This paper presents a study of polyamide 6/sepiolite clay nanocomposite, obtained by melt compounding in a mini twin-screw extruder, and characterised in terms of morphology (SEM and TEM analysis)… Expand
The water absorption behaviour of all-polypropylene composites and its effect on mechanical properties
Abstract Woven fabric based self-reinforced polypropylene (SRPP) or all-polypropylene (all-PP) composite laminates based on co-extruded tapes were analysed for water uptake and the effect that this… Expand
A Novel Concept for Highly Oriented Carbon Nanotube Composite Tapes or Fibres with High Strength and Electrical Conductivity
A new concept is described for the creation of multifunctional polymer nanocomposite tapes (or fibres) that combines high stiffness and strength with good electrical properties and a low percolation… Expand
Processing of Poly(propylene)/Carbon Nanotube Composites using scCO2‐Assisted Mixing
scCO 2 was used to assist in the preparation of PP/CNT composites. Two types of CNTs were used: MWNTs with and without HDPE coating (cMWNTs). The morphology of the nanocomposites and their mechanical… Expand
Significantly improving oxygen barrier properties of polylactide via constructing parallel-aligned shish-kebab-like crystals with well-interlocked boundaries.
Recently, some attempts have been made to enhance the gas barrier properties of semicrystalline polymers by precisely controlling the arrangement of their impermeable crystalline lamellae. However,… Expand
