Chementator: Nanocomposite

By Edited by Gerald Ondrey |

AkzoNobel Polymer Chemicals LLC (Chigago, Ill.; www.akzonobel.com/polymer) has launched Perkalite, a new range of synthetic, layered double-hydroxide (LDH) organoclays. With proper compounding, the LDH organoclays delaminate to nanoscale sizes and form a true nanocomposite, says the company. Perkalite nanocomposites feature improved flame retardancy, gas barrier properties and mechanical properties, says the manufacturer. It is suitable for use as a flame retardant synergist in low-smoke, zero-halogen wire and cable, and in building and construction applications. Perkalite also fully complies with European, and possibly U.S., regulations for food-contact applications. The product is produced at AkzoNobel’s site in Greiz, Germany, via a proprietary process.
