In this research, nanoclay reinforced polyester nanocomposites were developed with a semi-commercial process. Two types of nanoclays viz. graded and non-graded nanoclay were used as reinforcements. Each of the nanoclay was added 1 wt. % in polyester separately and the effects of the addition of nanoclay on the polyester were studied by mechanical characterization. Tensile and flexural strength were measured by using an Instron Universal Testing Machine. Hardness of the developed nanocompositesdoi:10.1016/j.proeng.2015.05.117 fatcat:37x6hl22qbewnofwyqpnoyfdk4
