Synthesis of Flame-Retardant Polypropylene/LDH-Borate Nanocomposites

Abstract:

New nanocomposites have been prepared using unmodified polypropylene (PP) and a new type of highly dispersed [Zn2Al(OH6)][B 4O5(OH)4]0.5 (Zn2Al- borate) and [Mg3Al(OH)8][B4O 5(OH)4]0.5 (Mg3Al-borate) layered double hydroxides (LDHs). PP/LDHs nanocomposites with LDH loadings of 1, 3, 6, 9, 15, and 30 wt % have been prepared by a novel solvent mixing method. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis shows that the precipitated nanocomposites materials form spherical particles with an average ...
