Nanocomposites based on layered inorganic compounds such as clays are in widely used owing to their high mechanical strength and good thermal resistance. Nanoparticles have an extremely high surface-to-volume ratio, which dramatically changes their properties when compared with their bulk-sized particles. Nanocomposites show improvement in mechanical properties (flexular strength, tensile strength, stiffness, and toughness). However, clay particles are polar, but most of the thermoplastic polymers, including polypropylene, are non-polar. Using a maleic anhydride compatibilizer can increase compatibility between the polar fibre and the nonpolar matrix, leading to improved functional properties of the composite material. The investigated maleic anhydride compatibilizer modified polypropylene composites possess increased tensile strength and Young’s modulus.
