Development and Applications of Polypropylene Nanocomposites

SpecialChem / Jul 27, 2011

A nylon 6-clay hybrid (nanocomposite, NCH) was developed by Toyota CRDL group. In the NCH, the silicate layers of clay mineral are dispersed on a nanometer level and are strongly interacted with the matrix, and then significant improvements in the mechanical properties of the material or the discovery of unexpected new properties were realized. Polypropylene (PP) is the most widely used polymer, a


Glass fibers are excellent to reinforce polymers but it only works in a 1 direction and it is expensive. MicaFort is way cheaper than fibers and it reinforces polymers in 2 directions with similar performance and smoother surface aesthetic.
