Abstract

Graphene oxide (GO) reinforced Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-Waterborne Castor Alkyd (WCA) nanocomposites (PVC/WCA/GO) films were processed through solution blending technique. TGA showed that the thermal stability of PVC/WCA/GO-0.5 films was better than that of PVC/WCA blend film. With incorporation of 0.5 wt.% GO, the tensile strength and elastic modulus of the blend nanocomposite have significantly improved by about 260% and 185%, respectively, compared with neat polymer. The physico-mechanical properties of these films suggest that the PVC/WCA/GO nanocomposite films may have a potential scope for their application in packaging industries. The results are supported by characterizations like FTIR, XRD, TEM and FESEM.
