  • Improved gas barrier properties
  • Improved mechanical and thermal properties compared to neat resin
  • Low loading levels (2-8%) for increased stiffness with minimal impact on specific gravity

Nanocomposite Compounds incorporate organo-clay hybrids into nylon and other resins at a mere 2-8% loading. These compounds produce lightweight parts with dramatic enhancements in heat distortion temperature and stiffness comparable to a 20-30% load of a standard mineral-filled compound.

The microscopic platelets in Nanocomposite Compounds improve transmission rates by two to four times, providing excellent barrier properties against moisture, gasses, and fragrances.
