Spinnability of isotactic polypropylene iPP (melt flow 25 g/10 min) was studied after addition of three nanofillers at 0.3% by wt., two nanoclays and a modified hydrotalcite. TGA evidenced the increase of thermooxidation stability in nanofilled iPPs. All these iPP were successfully processed and tensile properties similar to those of iPP fibers were achieved. Processing and mechanical draw ratio were evaluated. Moreover, nanofilled iPP fibers appeared to be more prone to further drawing, as derived from both the maximum attainable strength and the maximum attainable drawing, as presented in the interpretation model of mechanical testing.

Abstract

Spinnability of isotactic polypropylene iPP (melt flow 25 g/10 min) was studied after addition of three nanofillers at 0.3% by wt., two nanoclays and a modified hydrotalcite. TGA evidenced the increase of thermooxidation stability in nanofilled iPPs. All these iPP were successfully processed and tensile properties similar to those of iPP fibers were achieved. Processing and mechanical draw ratio were evaluated. Moreover, nanofilled iPP fibers appeared to be more prone to further drawing, as derived from both the maximum attainable strength and the maximum attainable drawing, as presented in the interpretation model of mechanical testing.
