Better dispersion of clay in a PET matrix

from SPE Plastics Research Online

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) maintains a good balance of thermal and mechanical properties compared to other conventional polymers and therefore occupies a privileged position in the plastics industry. Although it is well known that incorporating clay minerals into PET enhances its physical, mechanical and barrier properties, industrial applications of PET/clay nanocomposites have been limited because clay disperses poorly in the PET matrix. Thermokinetic mixing reduces the size of clay particles and disperses them more homogeneously than melt extrusion. more
