The investigation of PVC-based nanocomposites by atomic force microscopy

Physical materials technology

The morphology of surface of film composite materials based on PVC with injected nanodispersed Al2O3 (original and modified by phosphorus-oxide and silicon-organic structures) were investigated by Atomic Force Microscopy. The results were compared with the water vapor permeability of tested materials. It was suggested about the influence of the chemical nature of the filler surface on the water vapor permeability of the composite.
