Abstract/Summary Recently a considerable effort has been dedicated toward preparation of polymer/layer nanocomposites (polymer layered silicate (PLS) nanocomposites or polymer clay nanocomposites (PCNC)), which consist of a polymer matrix with a dispersed organic nanolayer. These composites have received considerable attention in fundamental research and industry. Interest in polyolefin nanocomposites has emerged due to their promise of improved performance in packaging and engineering applications. The most representative PE grades found in today’s market are LDPE, LLDPE and HDPE.1 Several workers have highlighted studies on the different structures of melt compounded clay and polyolefins, and the effect on the mechanical and thermal properties. These nanocomposites exhibit enhanced properties at very low filler content compared to conventional filled polymers, (usually inferior to 5 wt%) such as increased Young’s modulus, thermal stability, barrier properties, decreased gas/vapour permeability and good flame retardancy
