Abstract:

Purpose: To verify influence of nanoparticles on structure development.Design/methodology/approach: Injection moulding technologies including conventional and non-conventional ones.Findings: Stiffness of materials reinforced by MMT increased dramatically and expectations of most interesting results were concentrated close to 3 wt% of nano filling.Research limitations/implications: N-CIM technology allows control of development of the structure, limited by parameters of non-conventional injection system (time, pressures etc).Practical implications: PP/MMT nanocomposites are the promising engineering materials with wide range of application for household equipment, agriculture, packaging, medicine, automotive and building engineering.Originality/value: Induced shearing supports splitting of agglomerations, improve dispersion and intercalation of MMT. Better distribution improves significantly the strength.
