Technical Paper -
Ultraviolet-curable nanocomposites containing organically modified nanoclays were prepared to serve as barrier coatings against oxygen and water permeation. A novel in situ synthesis technique was used to produce well-dispersed clays in an unsaturated polyester polymer before crosslinking. The in situ dispersion route was compared with nanocomposites prepared by mixing and sonication for several...
