Modified halloysite as a filler for epoxy resins

The modification methods of halloysite and further applications of the modified mineral as a filler for epoxy resins have been presented. The advantage of ultrasound treatment prior to chemical modification with an organic compound in order to obtain a hybrid filler was confirmed. The analysis of the composites obtained with the use of the modified halloysite (3-5 wt.% range) as a filler for epoxy resins indicates an improved interphase interaction and mechanical properties in comparison to the composites based on neat halloysite.

Keywords: layered-tubular mineral; chemical modification; modification with ultrasounds; fillers; filling of epoxy resins; mechanical and thermal properties
