In the present work a new type of composite material has been prepared
from mixing of polypropylene and polyamide 6 at constant ratio (80/20)] and
adding different weight percent (0, 5,10,15)% of both local bentonite and red
kaoline fillers respectively by using single screw extruder .Some of mechanical
properties such as tensile strength (Young modulus) tensile at fracture and
elongation of filled and unfilled PP/PN6 blends were determined at different
temperatures, and different weight percent of filler. Addition of filler increases the
Young modulus and tensile strength at break. Bentonite filler gives better
mechanical properties, than red kaoline fillers. Also empirical equations were
obtained which could be utilizing to calculate one of the mechanical properties in
term of temperatures and weight fraction of filler content. An equation was
proposed to show the best fit with experimental data, relevant contour diagrams,
for optimization of properties is also presented.
