Abstract

The increase in thermal stability, flame retardancy, and mechanical properties of Polyamide 6 (PA6)/montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposites open a new research window in respect to successful technical application of PA6/MMT nanocomposites on the industrial scale. This illustration provides important indication to understand a widely reported but poorly identified phenomena of catalysing effect of different ions, materials, or compounds present in MMT during the combustion of PA6/MMT nanocomposites.
