Polymer Reinforcement

Additives are widely used to reinforce polymers and improve properties like dimensional stability and scratch resistance. Examples of some common polymer reinforcers are: fibers (glass, carbon, polymeric, etc.), fillers such as silica.

Apart from these common types of reinforcers, there is now an increasing trend of using nanotechnology-based additives like carbon nanotubes, nanoclays, halloysite nanotubes.
