polyamide 6

THERMOMECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF COMPOSITIONS BASED ON POLYAMIDE 6, OBTAINED FROM THE SOLUTION

Thermomechanical studies of polamide 6 compositions, modified with (MPM) montmorillonite-polyvinylpyrrolidone mixture, were performed. Polyamide 6 nanocomposites were obtained by the solution deposition. The influence of nanocomposite production conditions on morphological features of polymer blends were researched. Determination of thermomechanical properties makes it possible to define the optimal content of MPM in polyamide 6 blends.

Influence of Polymer-Silicate Nucleator on the Structure and Properties of Polyamide 6

Physico-chemical properties of developed nickel-containing modified silicate materials as the nucleators for composites based on polyamide 6 are presented. As it was established, additive of the nucleator modified by polyvinylpyrrolidone promotes the increase of crystallinity degree of polyamide 6 and the decrease of crystallite size. It was found that changes in the structure of the material cause the increase of its tensile strength, surface hardness and Vicat softening point.
