dc.description.abstractThe polymer/clay nanocomposite has unique morphologies which help to improve the properties of the nanocomposite material itself. The morphologies are the intercalation and also the exfoliation. Intercalation is happen when the clay layers is penetrated by epoxy resin and the epoxy resin continue to expand inside the clay layers and with several help from other process the clay layers being separated and disperse throughout the epoxy resin. The separation of the clay layers is called exfoliation. There is a lot method being studied by the researchers all over the world to control these morphologies. Some of them are shearing and pre-conditioning. The objective of this study is to check the relationship between the effects of the homopolymerize state of the sample after pre-conditioning for various times/temperatures and then the sample being sheared by using the roll mill machine to see the dispersion of the clay particle. Several nanocomposite samples are pre-conditioned at a certain temperature and time, and then the sample is being sheared using the 2-roll mill machine. In this report also studies the effect of using different epoxy resin on the homopolymerize state of the samples.
