It is difficult to prepare clay nanocomposites of high volume fraction clay. Layer-by-layer methods have been successful, but are difficult to use in large-scale production. In the present study, papermaking techniques are used for fabrication of oriented clay platelet nanocomposites. Materials are characterized by TEM, SEM, XRD and mechanical and barrier properties are measured and fire retardance performance is demonstrated. High strength and stiffness is demonstrated and the potential for bionanocomposites is discussed, in particular with moisture durability in mind.
