Resum
Three different methods of fabricating polymer layered silicate (PLS) nanocomposites based upon a tri-functional epoxy resin are compared in respect of the nanostructure and impact energy of the cured nanocomposites. The three methods are designed to maximise the amount of intra-gallery reaction that takes place during cure, and this paper examines separately the effects of: (i) increasing the isothermal cure temperature; (ii) preconditioning the resin/clay mixture; and (iii) incorporating an in...
