Abstract

This study aimed at proposing an optimum mixing strategy based on the three-roll mill mixing, the ultrasonication, or a combination of both. We first prepared polyester polymer-nanoclay nanocomposites in styrene solution by the use of predispersed surface modified nanoclays. Three different kinds of surface modified nanoclays were chosen for investigating the effect of the nature and loading of clay on the properties of the nanocomposites. Results from this study indicate that various nanoclay types and contents can be mixed with polyesters in different ways to produce polyester-based nanocomposites with desired mechanical and barrier properties.
