Abstract

In this study, halloysitenanoclay reinforced polyester composites were prepared by adding different weight percentage in unsaturated polyester resin and subsequently cross linked using mixture of methyl ethyl ketone peroxide. The effect of methanol immersion on the flexural strength and tensile strength of polyester halloysite nanoclay was experimentally investigated. After 30 minutes of immersion in methanol, samples were tested and analysed. From the experimental results, flexural and tensile properties of halloy sitenanoclay/polyester decreased as a result of methanol reactionon the polymer composites. Keywords—Polyester composites, Halloysitenanoclay, Effect of Methanol, Mechanical Properties.
