SIDDIQUE, S., YATES, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2016. Thermal stability, flame retardancy and mechanical properties of polyamide/montmorillonite nanocomposites prepared by melt processing. Presented at the 3rd International structural nano composites conference 2016 (NANOSTRUC 2016), 12-16 September 2016, Aberdeen, UK.
The increase in thermal stability, flame retardancy, and mechanical properties of Polyamide 6 (PA6)/montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposites open a new research window in respect to successful technical application of PA6/MMT nanocomposites on the industrial scale. This illustration provides important indication to understand a widely reported but poorly identified phenomena of catalysing effect of different ions, materials, or compounds present in MMT during the combustion of PA6/MMT nanocomposites.
