Abstract

This article investigates the influence on mechanical
properties of using a two compatibilizer system. Cloisite-
Na Clay (ClNa) was organically modified in different
ways with a polyethermonoamine and maleated
polypropylene (MA-g-PP) added as a second compatibilizer.
A corotating twin-screw extruder was used to
obtain nanocomposites based on polypropylene via the
melt intercalation technique. X-ray diffraction and differential
scanning calorimetric results showed that
intercalated nanocomposites with improved thermal
stability were obtained. Increases of 8% in tensile
strength, 34% in modulus, and 20% in crystallinity were
observed. Also an increase of 23% in creep properties
was observed when using these two compatibilizer
system and 1% clay. POLYM. ENG. SCI., 00:000–000, 2012.
