Abstract:

The introduction of inorganic nanomaterials as additives into polymer systems has resulted in polymer nanostructured materials exhibiting multifunctional, high performance polymer characteristics beyond what traditional polymer composites possess. Selective thermoplastic elastomers have been used with montmorillonite organoclays, POSSregistered, carbon nanofibers to develop a flame resistant material. Thermal and flammability properties of these polymer nanocomposites will be presented.
