MARINI, Juliano  e  BRETAS, Rosario Elida Suman. Optical Properties of Blown Films of PA6/MMT Nanocomposites. Mat. Res. [online]. 2017, vol.20, suppl.1, pp.53-60.  Epub 23-Out-2017. ISSN 1980-5373.

In this work blown films of polyamide 6 (PA6) nanocomposites were produced at different processing conditions, with the addition of montmorillonite (MMT), pure and surface modified by an organic salt. The films' optical properties were evaluated according to ASTM D-1003 and the results correlated with the degree of crystallinity, nanoparticle's dispersion state and processing conditions. It was observed that the thinner the film, the lower the haze and higher the clarity, due to the presence of less internal scattering structures in the direction of the incident light. The PA6 films with the unmodified MMT had the lowest clarity values, due to nanoparticles' agglomeration. The organic modification of the montmorillonite led to its exfoliating through the PA6 matrix, resulting in an optimization of the films' optical properties (decreased haze and increased clarity) when compared to the pure PA6 films.
