Summary Novel polyamide nanocomposite fibres have been produced by compounding semi aromatic Poly (m-xylene adipamide) (MXD6) and organophilic Montmorillonite (MMT). Partially orientated fibres (POF) of MXD6 nanocomposite were obtained by melt spinning on a multifilament fibre extrusion system at three different speeds. The effect of the drawing velocity
on the mechanical properties of the filaments has been determined. Tensile measurements indicated that the introduction of the nanoparticies by melt intercalation improves the tenacity and toughness of the resulting polyamide fibres. The microstructure of the nanocomposites was examined by X-ray diffraction and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and shown to
be an exfoliated disordered structure. The thermal stability of MXD6 nanocomposites was analysed by thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) suggesting stabilisation of the clay and the polymer systems above 450°C.
