Abstract

Blended composites were prepared by employing nylon6 as a polymer matrix and a kaolinite-nylon6 intercalation compound or kaolinite as an inorganic filler. An increase in tensile moduli of the composites was confirmed and the layered structure was retained. Results suggested for larger interfaces between the kaolinite surface and polymers higher dispersion of kaolinite crystallites in polymers.
