Characterization Multiscale of Poly(propylene) Nanocomposites Made up with Modified Nanoclay



Summary: This paper shows the characterization carried out in polypropylene nanocomposites made up with different proportions of modified nanoclays (1% 2.5% and 5%). Modified nanoclay (montmorillonite) has been added to improve the mechanical properties of the original matrix and increase its heat resistance. The objective of this work is to characterize multiscale nanocomposites, from nano-scale to macroestrucutural scale using thermography, nanoindentaton and mechanical testing.
