Abstract
BACKGROUND: Ethylene–(vinyl alcohol) (EVOH) copolymer/organo-modified montmorillonite (OMMT) composites were investigated. Composites with two different percentages by weight of OMMT were prepared using a melt-extrusion procedure in a twin-screw extruder, using EVOH asmatrix. Filmsmade of EVOH and EVOH/OMMT composites were prepared in a cast-film extrusion line. RESULTS: The mechanical properties were evaluated by tensile tests and the fracture behaviour was analysed using the essential-work-o...
