Dielectric properties of high density polyethylene-nano-composites



Abstract. Recently, polymer Nano-composites have been used for various important industrial applications. This paper studies the dielectric properties of high density polyethylene HDPE composed with different concentrations of Clay-Nano-Filler over a frequency range of 200 Hz-2 MHz. The experimental results show that 6% filler concentration is the optimum clay content for HDPE/Clay Nano-Filler material.
