Nanofillers: Optimization of the Processing Parameters for a Better Dispersion using 1D-Simulation

Nanoclay are nano-sized particles of layered mineral silicates. They are used as nanofillers to  mechanically reinforce  thermoplastic resins. The improvement of composite properties depends on the nanofillers dispersion  inside the polymer matrix which is reached by melt processing. Twin-screw extrusion, as traditionally used in industrial compounding, is the preferred method for processing thermoplastic/based composites. The objective of this […]
