Nano-composites exhibit advantageous mechanical and physical properties already at small additions of modifying particles, frequently lower than 5 wt %. The present studies focused on polymeric nano-composites containing flame retardant nano-clay. The matrix used in the present study was a two-component low-molecular-weight epoxy resins. Such a matrix is used to fabricate composite structures used in aviation. As a filler, three types of modified natural montmorillonite (MMT) and various types of commonly used flame retardants were employed. The aim of the study was to develop flame retardant nano-composites containing the lowest possible amount of flame retarding fillers. To this end, a series of nanocomposites with MMT and flame retardants were fabricated.
This research was financed by the Polish State Committee for Scientific Research (PBZ-KBN-095/T08/2003).
