Nanocomposites are a class of mineral-reinforced plastics that are formulated with relatively small amounts (2-5%) of nanometer-sized clay particles that are said to provide large improvements in mechanical and thermal properties, as well as gas barrier and flame resistance. They also reduce shrinkage and warpage. And all of these benefits are available without significantly raising the density of the compound or reducing light transmission.
