Montmorillonite clay nano particles and its properties

  • Modified nano clay in to polypropylene create active dye sites.

  • can impart flame retardant property to the composite

  • Have the UV blocking capability

    • Light scattering of a material due to change in refractive index.

    • layered structure of a material change the material’s refractive index.

    • Incident light is only attenuated through light scattering. therefore no absorption will take place.

UPF (Ultraviolet protection factor)

  • Measures the Ultra Violet protection of the substrate

  • Can be performed by measuring the material’s diffuse transmittance in the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum.

  • For textile materials UPF depends on

    • Thickness and density of the fabric

    • Fabric construction

    • Dye and pigments presence in the textile, fiber, yarn

    • Chemical structure of the fiber

Comparison of mechanical properties of nano fiber composite

Nano fiber tensile strength measure mechanism

  • Single fiber can be mounted on one end to an AFM cantilever tip using electron beam-induced deposition (that served as a force-sensing element)

  • Other end glued to the etched tip of a tungsten wire (using glue and optical microscope).

  • Tensile tests of the fiber can be conducted inside the SEM vacuum chamber

  • Applied force can be calculated from the observed deflection of the AFM cantilever

Conclusion

  • MMT layered nano materials has the UV blocking capability.

  • SL nano clay compared to Na-MMT has a good UV blocking capability.

  • Nano clay particles embedded nano fibers can be produced using electro spinning technology.

  • Electro spinning technology has low out put and should be further developed to make fiber composite at bulk level.

  • SL nano clay with layered structure can be successfully use to produce curtains with UV blocking property.

  • Future work should focus on following

    • Measure the absorbency of the nano fiber composite in the UV spectrum

    • Measure the UPF of the fiber composite

    • Measure the individual nano composite fiber strength
